Hey i just watched the video and it looks like the fish not moving the sand on purpose but going after something in the rock! Or eating things that are found in the sand.

Yes, clownfish will do this from time to time for various reasons. Some more often than others.

As the above poster mentioned, it looks to me like your clownfish is agitating the sand to find things to eat. After it messes up the sand, it looks around and goes after a few things floating in the water.

Well the wife told me the fins on the clown are pretty tore up so I am going to have her placed the clown in the quarantine tank and treat it for that. She has some scale damage from scratching on the rock so hopefully this will help her heal quickly. Any suggestions on what to treat her with? I have melafix and something else but I can't remember what its called. Thanks and sorry for hijacking the thread.
