help, I think my clown is sick

One of my true percula clown fish is acting different. I have had them since saturday. For about 2 hours now it has been swimming next to one side of aquarium and up and down that one side eand swimmig very fast and its body waving a lot. I turned the lights off and now it is swimming in middle of tank but its body is waving a lot more then other clown. Could this be a sign that is something wrong?

That is good to know. I have another question. Being that I purchased 4 fish at once on saturday, when should I do a pwc? I have 75g tank, I have 25g of water ready to go. I checked parameters and nitrate 5 everything else is zero.

Mine did the same thing. He would swim up and down a corner of the tank.

IMO it`s never a bad time to do a PWC. I would maybe do 1/2 now and the other 1/2 a week later.

Yes. I am getting ready to do 15g(20%) now and then do it again on sunday. My clown goby is swimming around he was perched on the bottom where we couldn't see him. He doesn't eat a lot though. The 6 line wrasse is starting to come out too. I can't get much housework done because I am too busy looking at the tank.

I agree it sounds like normal clown behavior. Mine like playing pin-the-tail-on-the-glass all the time.
