What is your salinity at? Do you have plenty of surface aggitation for aeration of your tank. How long ago was he added to your tank? What size tank?

Those look pretty good. I`m wondering if it might be a swim bladder problem. When was the last time you did a PWC.

I kind of had the same thing happen with my maroon clown. He was swimming at the top, in the corner. I reduced the flow in my tank, and he seems to be doing much better. BUT, he still does it a few times a day. Seems to be normal behavior. IME Only.

I unplugged one of the powerheads thinking there might be electric being sent in the water.Today much better.My theory might have been right
