leopard wrasse trying to jump

I have a leopard wrasse that i have had for 7 months with no issues, and the last few days he was been swimming at the top of my tank trying to jump and slapping around, I believe that he has been bullied by my clown fish...is there anything wrong with my wrasse or is he just trying to get away from the clown fish?

he is with 2 black and white clowns, a Christmas wrasse, and a red fairy wrasse, and pistol shrimp and goby...only the clowns have shown aggression

he is eating mysis shrimp and pellets

is just swimming/ getting pushed by the current at the top of the tank and trying to jump and splashing water

he was not quarantined by me, and i am not currently using any medication

i have a 75 gallon with a 30 sub pump...with live sand and live rock

What are your water parameters? Often fish jumping is a sign of something they don't like in the water.

While jumping may indicate agitation, male fairy wrasses jump to get a female's attention.
