What is my clown doing??

Tank has been going for 7 weeks. Have a damsel and 2 clowns. The one clown has good color and swims all over the place. He likes to play in the sand a lot but i noticed he sometimes does this odd thing where it looks like he is having a seizer. Just every once and a while though. I am not sure if it is some behavior??? I just added the second one and he is not doing it. Thoughts?

I've been doing a lot of research because I am wanting to get a pair of clowns and from what I read that is normal. A sign of dominance or something. I may be wrong but that is what I read on other sites

The clowns are trying to figure out who will be the male and female. This is normal behavior the bigger one will beet up on the smaller one and at some point this will stop and they will pair.

I got the second clown like 3 weeks later. They are always together. I figured it was some behavior. It looked odd and wanted to make sure it was not some disease. I figured they would team up. Cool if they would breed but i know thats a little tough.

Clowns are great to watch. How old is your tank? A nice nem would do them the world of good if your tank is established enough!

Don't get a nem for another 5 or 6 months. If you do get a bubble tip as your tank isn't big enough for anything else.
