I don't know if I need to be concerned. I've had the fish for 3 weeks and this is the first time I've seen him clamp at all. When I turn out his light, his tail unclamps right away and slowly clamps up a little again. My kids (4 and almost 7) have been making a ton of noise lately and have been in his room more so I don't know if that affects him.)
