Clowns seem to find a place that they go to every night and just "waddle". Swim in one place. Looks weird, I know. Now vertically is someting I've not seen, but I wouldn't worry at all.

All fish sleep. Most will hide wherever they feel comfortable, within the lr or next to a power head.

Mine sleeps the same exact way. When it was in the QT, it slept horizontal near the top, in the corner. Once it got in the main tank, it now sleeps about mid tank, vertical, in the front corner.
