Sulking Male Clownfish

I have a pair of clowns in a 130L Tank with a firehawk and a royal dotty back. All 4 fish have been getting along great. (though the female does chase the male around for a small while when the male starts flirting with the other fish)

Today I went home and found the male sulking behind a rock. He hides at the back of the tank behind a rock and when I get close to the glass he comes out slightly but the subsides right away.

Is this normal?

Water parametres are all ok. only recently did a water change and tested for amonia, nitrate, phosphates, ph, calc, nitrites etc. I have some corals that are all ok aswell.

The temperature in the tank is only just under the maximum temp that it should be in (im not sure of the exact temperature. I just use the indicator of the thermometre).

Please help!
