clown crazy

My ocleanus clown seems to have lost his mind. It has been doing flips all morning. It was normal when we went to bed. My daughter got bored counting at 435. He will stop for a few seconds and run into the walls and rock as if he is dizzy. He ate shrimp last night, but nothing this morning. He is going ...
Is this normal or will he spin himself to death???

I have a 72bwfrt - 2 clowns, a green damsel, 40 lbs live rock and 2 crabs

Send a message via Yahoo to quarryshark
How long were they in the system? Did you qt them?
If not you may want to consider a qt tank.
are there any marks or spots in the fish? Are they eating?

It's either a bladder problem or bacterial infection. Where either fish jostled alot or hurt when netted at the LFS? Any sign of discoloration or outward trauma?

Either way, you should QT the remaining clown and treat with Metronidazole or possibley Pipzine. Wouldn't be a bad idea to feed it some mysis with slightly softened mashed peas as well.

Cheers
Steve
