Is your clown trigger bothering him at all?? Sounds like you have a similar stock to what I had. I ended up giving my clown trigger back because he bit half my lions fin off!! As for the fresh water dips IMO that will cause more harm then good because your stress him out even more! How are your parameters?

Water Is good and the clown doesn't seem to be bothering him at all....I'll try another water change and see if that helps....
