Clowns Arching Backs & Sparring

I have two 2.5-3.0 inch clowns. Today when I got home from work, they were swimming in circles seemingly spining each other in all possible places, with their fins outspread, mostly keeping near the bottom and near a log that they hide in. I do not know their sexes. There have no changes in the tank that I am aware of. Their black stipes seemed darker than ever. One of the loaches has dark grey stripes, but today it was completely black (it sometimes gets darker on its own). What's going on with this behavior? Also, what's up with the color changing?
