Hi all I’ve noticed the past 2 days my clown has been acting strange sitting on the sand bed for long periods of time he’s eating fine and will swim actively I’ve read on a thread that behaviour like this can happen eventually leading to death and not knowing the cause all parameters are fine and no telling signs on the fish I’ll post a video below thanks

Eating and swimming fine are positive attributes.

Slowness, spots, rubbing, twitching, swimming constantly into current, not eating, not eating as much, some things that might get my attention.

I don't see any disease on the fish, and you say you have good parameters ,try doing a good water change, sometimes that works wonders especially with clownfish.

From the pic to floating at the top and gasping.
That’s a major change….do I understand you correctly?

Is anyone else affected

What size?

Are you positive these are male and female?

When fish are fine, then go south virtually overnight I assume attack, if there’s no other evidence of disease.

I don’t see the vid, just the pic….

Everything else is fine and yes definitely the female from time to time will get aggressive with the male the size difference is also a teller and everything else seems to be doing ok coral and other fish I’ve done a 20% water change again just to be sure

Id get some opinions from a current video.

I just see two normal looking clowns in a still pic.
