Weird Clown Loach Behavior

HELP!! For almost two days now, my two clown loaches have been swimming in unison in tight clockwise circles against a corner at the back wall of my tank. I have had them approximately 2 months and they have never done this before. They do not seem to stop to eat and prior to the beginning of this behavior they were voracious eaters. I have a 29 gallon tank with two clowns, three albino corys and 13 adult guppies and 10 tiny babies. (Eight of the adults and the babies were just added Sunday afternoon. I think the behavior began on Sunday.) I did a 1/3 water change/cleaning on Saturday. I am very worried about them. It is impossible to watch them without getting dizzy, it is that bad. From what I can see of their swifly moving bodies, nothing new has broken out on them, they look pretty much the same. Thanks for any help
