Update on loach sounds

I was observing my loaches today. I noticed that when the Botia Modestas made the clicks their bodies jolted a tiny bit. My Morleti and Dario's made some clicks also. The large Clown loaches made very low clicks while my smaller loaches made lighter and quicker clicks. Can anyone explain to me how loaches make these clicks? I would be very interested to hear information on this sound production. Thanks all responses would be greatly appreciated.
