Clownfish sleeping on the sand bed?

So far, I've gone through two clownfish, one which I lost to ich about six months ago, and one jumping out of the tank last week. I just got a new one (true percula) and I noticed that he sometimes sleeps on the sandbed or next to a powerhead. I've never seen a clown sleep on the sandbed like this. Have any of you guys who have clowns heard of this and is it normal, cause ive never had a clown who did so? He eats on a regular basis and is healthy in the fact that he is active, colorful, and eats like a hog. Is he OK?

My first clownfish I got, before I added another one, slept on the sandbed underneath the powerhead at night. It was just fine!

Thanks, I thought he was fine. I guess thats just him getting used to being in a new tank.

He's a clown. Mine used to swim up in the corner of the tank at night.

There is nothing unusual about your clown.
