Unhappy Extremely bloated clownfish

I recently set up and already established 8 gallon oceanic biocube. I let it cycle for almost a wk after setting it back up before introducing 2 clownfish to the system. They have been living well for about 3 wks now but in the last 3 days the male clownfish has started to show an extreme bloating and is now to the point of looking like he is going to explode. Last water test showed a trace of ammonia and nitrite both have been treated for and tested for again. Any ideas on the clownfish would be awesome? Should I remove him from the tank in case he dies and I'm not around to remove him in time?

Two clowns in a 8 gallon tank is not a good idea. How was the ammonia and nitrites treated for. Did you cycle your tank?

I did a 25% water change added more live rock along with a drop of prime. And yes I cycled it before adding the fish. They also were introduce the same time and have become a pair with the male being the bloated one.
