Ocellaris Clownfish Behavior

I have 2 of Ocellaris Clownfish and one of them is spending alot of time on the sand behind a rock just sitting there sometimes it will move around a fan the sand and move it out of the way and kind of make a little indention in the sand. I notice this behavior at night and not during the day.

Anyone know what is happening?

They have been in the tank since Sunday.

Tank Specs:
Ammonia 0.25
Nitrate 0
Nitrite 0
PH 8.2

Yep, my tomato clown brushes away the sand from around his anemone.

Get one if you must but the clownfish dosen't "require" one. Anemone's are very hard to keep sometimes, comes from most of them are wild caught I think. I have had 8 or so in the past year (before I found out how hard they are to keep) and if mine die off again I'm going to put a rubber band anemone in the tank. Sometimes I wished I didn't have the one in my tank with the tomato, all he does all day & night is wallow around in his anemone and only comes out for feeding. and to chase the stray intruder away.
