Are my clowns sick?

Just got these two clowns in my tank. I bought them as a pair and drip acclimated them. A few hours later I noticed they are climbing or swimming against the glass. the baby keeps swimming against the glass all over the tank and the adult kinda leans on the sand. sry, the pic is sideways.

Mine spend most of their time swimming up and down against the back of the tank as if they think the back of the tank is the bottom so you are not alone. Guess they call them clownfish for more than just their looks.
