occelaris flashing

So today I notice one of ny occelaris clowns flashing against the power head in one particular side of his body. No white spots. Even under just blue leds (taotronics) now he has begun to frequently swim face first into the flow if one of my koralias. When it blows him out he will just dart back in. Occasionally taking breaks. He looks like he possibly could me having trouble breathing.


Clowns were put in the tank approximately 2 months ago. After I lost 2 to brook. Tank went fishless for almost 9 weeks before adding these clowns. (They also endured a 6 week copper qt with formalin dips.

Put him in qt again or wait and see?
