Clownfish darting

I have had my clownfish for about 6 months now and he randomly has started to dart around the aquarium a lot. He is swimming very fast. Does anyone know what this is?

Do you just have one clown? Is he rubbing against rocks when darting?

The only thing that changed is that my urchin ate algae on a rock last night and the rock is brighter now

Sounds like it is acting normally as long as parameters are squared away.

Does he dart and Kind of hover in one spot? Is he glass surfing?

Could it be stray electric voltage in the water. Do you have a ground probe?
