    Do you have a pair? Might be that they are spawning, had Pomacentrus pavo spawn in my tank and they also went weird colours during that time. They deposit eggs on a rock/glass like clownfish.

    Damsels do change sex. But as far as I know damsels are the opposite of clowns. They are born female and the largest turn into a male.
