Cavemates- Yo-Yo and Zebra

I was at a LFS, and saw a tank with one half inch Zebra. I felt so bad for him, as all his friends were seperate in another tank, lounging on and around a air sponge. He was active, and was readily eating. I bought him, with a 1 inch Yo-yo loach. The guy there said they are both slow growers, and won't overstock the tank in the time between now and when I upgrade to a 30-gallon.

After I introduced them into the tank, they swam around for a bit. Yo-Yo switched his Y patterns upside-down (not uncommon), paled out and swam into a cave. He was soon joined by the Zebra. I came back to check on my newest loaches 15 minutes later, and found they were very close already!
