Clownfish problem

Hi there, i just got a austrian percula clownfish from my LFS its a really nice clown about 1inch. I put it in my tank today and its was doing well until i switched off the lights. I came back after 2hours while the lights was off to check up on my new clownfish and iv realised that its on its side at the top of my tank just swimming from the back of my tank to the front :S is there a problem here? because i have also got a clown sweetlips fish and he's doing fine.
