Borneo Vs Sumatra Clowns

Hi , Does anyone have any info on the difference between these two 'strains' ? I have just added a 6" Clown to my 66Gal tank where I have 1x4", 3x2" and one 7" clown loachs. The existing residents were all the same type, exactly. The big one who was there first is now nearly white since the addition of the new 6"er! He seems to hate the new big one, who is quite clearly not the same breed exactly. It is much slimmer, not as bullet shaped and there are more pronounced yellow bands by the side of the black stipes. He also does not change colour as much, and is less timid than the big one. I am slightly worried he is going to upset the peaceful apple cart...
