Yo-Yo Loach Bad Behavior Question

Hi, I have a three year old clown loach who is a gregarious fellow and seems happy with out the company of other loaches. Having read many times that loaches do better in groups, I purchased a yo-yo loach because it was the first time I'd seen one and it's a beautiful addition to my community tank.
This yo-yo however is a pain in the butt to all of the others - especially to my clown I think. The yo-yo swims along side the clown at jet speed (I assume the clown is trying to get away from him) and the yo-yo seems to be sucking the slime coat off the clown and the swords in the tank. Is this behavior normal? Am I correct to assume that he's stressing out the clown? I'm ready to take him back to my lfs. I've had him in the tank for about 4 months but his behavior keeps getting more and more aggressive it seems.
Thanks for any help.
