clown fish diagnosis please

The white band closest to my clownfish’s tail has faded to a pinkish white. His tail fin is a little tattered. Sometimes he swims in jerky motions as if jumping through the water. He prefers to swim headlong into the outlet now. None of these are normal. What’s wrong?

1. 64g
2. Saltwater, 3 months old
4. Two false clowns, 1 blue tang, i chromis green, two blennies, two gobies, two hermit crabs, 1 urchin
5. Are there live plants in the aquarium? little ones
6. What make/model filter are you using? trickle filter
7. Are you using a CO2 unit? NO
8. Does your aquarium receive natural sunlight at any given part of the day? A small amount
9. When did you perform your last water exchange, and how much water was changed? two weeks ago, 65%
10.How often and what foods do you feed your fish? twice to three times a day - frozen mysis, live brine, pellet, flake, nori for the tang
