Help!!!! What do clowns sleeping look like?!

I fed my two Ocell. Clown Fish turned the light out and went out for a few hours and came back to them both laying down! I turned a light on (Not the tank light) and they started moving around but they didnt get far off of the ground!

Ive had they for three days and theyve only been in the top center of the tank

HELP ME

That's normal! Mine sleep either on the ground or on the glass. The start swimming again if you leave the light on for 5 minutes

Thats very normal.

Take a look! In deep sleep with the tank lights in in the morning. I had to knock on glass to wake them.

Wow my clowns never slept like that.. I would've been worried too. Mine slept like an inch or two above the sand, kind of in a vertical position. Or at least angled towards vertical.

Mine used to sleep tucked into a piece of dead coral until I moved them to a new tank. Now they sleep verticle upside down in the corner. Looks crazy.
