Clown Loach Surface Slurping

Just sitting here listening to my clown loach slurp at the surface again. Can anybody tell me what the purpose of this slurpping is? I have also for the first time heard the clicking noises that loaches can make. I used to think it was just my loaches playing with one of those glass bobbing ornaments that I kept in the tank. Removed the ornament as it was bothering some of my other fish and still hear the noise. It was my clown and it sounded just like a pebble against the glass. My clown loach is certainly the most interesting specimen in my tank. I just wish I had the room to give him some company.
