Clown cleaners?

Has anyone seen their clowns trying to clean their other fish? I found one of my 2" clowns trying to clean my 6" royal pleco the other day. Most of the time the pleco just layed there and seemed to enjoy it but every one in a while the clown would jerk like he bit the pleco and the pleco was not at all happy about it. This went on for several minutes and I was just wondering if anyone else has seen this behavior. I have seen them try to clean other fish but it really makes the fish mad and they swim off. My gold zebra loach also is constantly irritating everyone trying to groom his tankmates. Let me know what you guys think.

Thanx, Vicky
