Twitching is usually a sign of mating behavior if there is another clown of the same species in the tank... what tank mates, water parameters and how was the fish acclimated?

Do you use a QT?

Cheers
Steve

Sounds like mating behavior although you do not mention a second clown (?), still a good possibility. Watch it for any adverse symptoms but baring that, you should be fine. Post back if otherwise.

Cheers
Steve
