Weird Hillstream behaviour.

"Just thought I would post this as it was quite unusual. My Hillstreams attacked the cory that I had placed in their tank to help keep it clean. It was a small Agassi Cory and had been in there for 3 days. Last night I was watching the tank and one of the Hillstreams started chasing the cory and then hitting him as hard as he could. The third hit he fell down and didn't move! I netted him out and put him in my 30 gallon with other cories.

Is this normal behavior? Geesh, didn't know the little guys could be so mean. I need to put something in the tank to help with clean-up."
