I had this with one of my clowns about 4 months ago.. He would swim normal for a minute the would go sideways for a while and I never did figure out what the problem was, all my params were fine also, unfortunately mine didn't make it.. Hope you have better luck and look forward to see I anyone knows what the problem is ..

If its night time, they will lay wherever comfortable. I have one that floats on his side toward the top and the female sleeps with her belly in the corner of the tank, facing straight down.

Seems to be a common behavior for clowns. Mine swam on their sides at the top rear of the tank for a long time. They still do this off and on, but they now swim in other areas of the tank. I thought they were confused until they started swimming upright.
