yo yo loach

I have a yo yo loach which I purchased 1 month ago from a pet store. The loach is about 3 inches long and has a appetite that won't quit. He is quite large in the stomach area as a result.

I don't know if he is greedy or what, but he chases all the other fish in my 25 gallon aquarium including clown loaches, barbs and tetras. His best chance of catching and nipping at fish are with the clown loaches. He actually makes them pant...

I am thinking about finding him another home if he keeps this up. So far no fatalities but I am concerned he may soon harm clowns.

Any suggestions to deal with this agressive yo yo??
