Clownfish sleeping

Hey Guys,

I have had two pairs of false percula clownfish and I'm wondering if they are sleeping properly, whenever I see my clowns at night they always seem to be swimming slowly at the top of the tank. Is this normal?

Thanks,

Dan

Yep. That's how a pair of my clowns slept.
Clowns do all sorts of weird things.

They scared me the first time I saw them at night almost floating at the top near a powerhead.
