Think I got to see the loachy dance

I have six recently acquired Clown Loaches in my 20 gallon.

I turned off the lights in the house and left the light on in the tank and sat real still in front of the tank for about ten minutes… (they are still pretty skittish – a couple have only been in there a day or so)

The largest clown came out first and did a once over of the tank from one end to the other, and then went and got his buddies. Before I knew it, there were six Clowns zipping from one corner of the tank to the other, and when they would get to the corner they would all try to pile on top of each other over and over again.

Very humorous and I assume that is the loachy dance.

They are eating well and starting to come out more when there is movement around the tank. What is more funny
