Weird clownfish behavior

My clownfish acts weird... The first day I put him in he was fine swimming all around my tank. Now he's in the same spot just swimming all day long. Is he hosting the top corner of my glass?

One of my clowns did that for three days about a week after I got her. Then went back to normal swimming after those three days. It was weird but she acts fine now.

Is he the only fish in the tank?

Yep, he moved now. Maybe because I changed the aquascape. I think he enjoys the water current in in certain areas of the tank. He's now moved his position to in the middle of the tank close to the glass.

my maroon stayed in the corner of my tank like he would miss out on something if he left his spot. i've heard its normal, my clown would swim around but only briefly then right back to the corner, he even dug out the corner all the way to the bottom glass. and up until yesterday he was doing fine,(we had an earthquake and i think it scared him to death!)
