I have a Evo 13.5 with a single clown fish and blood red shrimp. Yesterday I added a clean up crew and since then my clownfish has lost his mind. Swimming around fast in circles, running into the glass, and just seems agitated. Is this normal? Anything I can do??

A video would help.

If the clown has been in there awhile, he likely just got accustomed to what was in there. Since it's a smaller tank, he is likely just stressing out about it and just acting more lively. Honestly, I feel like this will all be fine. To ease your mine, just check for ammonia and nitrites. Added bio load of the cleanup crew could have spiked it a little. If he is still like this in another 24 hours with no improvement, I would test for minerals.

Did he eat okay yesterday or show any improvement thus far?

I agree with above post. Best bet is to shut off the lights and let the fish settle. Try to not stress the fish out by messing with the tank for a few days. Keep an eye on him and he should settle down in a day or so. If not I’d say there might be another problem.
