Lazy clown fish?

The largest clown I have seems to have taken up the art of laziness!
Lays at the bottom of my tank, just chillin...I noticed his behavior after rescuing 2 more clowns from a neighbor
During an ice storm 2 months ago.
He is other wise healthy and shows no signs of stress? Strange...

If he struggles to swim it's possible his swim bladder has been compromised. Possibly from a large temperature change.

He might have a bacterial infection. Even though he does not appear sick later the disease could strike. Try to look into medicines for these types of diseases.

The bigger of my two clowns was doing the exact same thing. She would stay in the bottom corner of the tank and lay on her side all day long. She did have some type of fungal disease in her mouth but once she shook that she can't keep still and swims all around the tank all day
