Whats wrong with my clowns!?

They stay towards the bottom of the tank now and out of the lights. At first i thought ich but i dont see any white spots. It kinda looks like a fuzz on them or something. The male clown seems to be the one hiding more, with the female being more active. They still eating fine, my nitrite and nitrate are both 0 along with my ammonia my temp is 78 and my salt is between 1.020 and 1.030. Ive notice this behavior for about 2-3 days already, can anyone help?

How long have they been in the tank? They just might need to acclimate to the tank. Here are some common clownfish ailments. See if they match any of your clowns. Hard to tell from the pics.
