Weird clownfish or what?

I keep seeing sand being pushed away from the corner. At first I thought it was the current but then realized my clown was like shaking its whole body in that corner. My other clown will join it too now and then.

Mine was doing something similar only at the base of a rock in the sand. Shortly after I had seen him doing it he was swimming at an angle as if one fin weighed more but when he saw it was feeding time he quickly straightened up. He did have me fooled for a minute there. I was already preparing the speech to give my daughter about her fish. I believe they get bored. Mine even torments the feather worm too lol
