Clown loach behaviour

I have 3 clown loaches approx 2 - 3" I have had them for about 3 mth in a community tank of 125gal. about 3 weeks ago my water quality when downhill with a capital D after introducing some new plants after water changes etc the balance has now come back to normal but one of the loaches is now behaving what is seemingly agreesive towards one of the others. it seems to be biting and rubbing itself against one of the others chasing it etc. I wondered at first if it was a mating ritual but have since read that they rarely mate in captivity so what is happening..... temp of tank is 78.5 with bog wood, plants, and gravel base.
