Clown behavior

We brought home two clowns today and they have been in the corner sorta swimming really close to each other in opposite directions and keep going around and around are they mating or something? They have been doing this for about an hour now, I would think they'd get tired.

I edited the post to show the web address, webshots does not allow hot linking, the pic can be seen if you copy the address and paste it into your browser, rather than clicking the link.

I seriously doubt they are mating, since you just brought them home, but more like reacting to the stress of capture and transfer.
