My clown

Ok I had an ich outbreak, and I know the symptoms of ich. Well I turned up the heat, and i have started hyposalinity to kill the ich. I tested this morning and all the levels are normal. One of my clowns seems like he's having seizures. He swims around, and eats fine. But once in awhile he starts shaking. He could be in mid-swim or sitting at the bottom it doesn't matter. I don't see any visible signs of ich cysts, and the jawfish haven't even been infected. So is this a symptom I of ich I don't know about or is it something I don't know about? TIA!

Clownfish just shake like that, especially at each other. I think it has something to do with the dominance thing they go through.
No worries, its normal. Unusual fish eh?

our clown is our first fish and he freaks us out daily. if hes not sleeping on his side on the surface he might be standing on his head on a piece of plumbing. they are very strange from what i have seen so far
