Itchy fish?

My large Clown loach seems to have an odd habbit of quickly turning on his side and slamming/rubbing himself against the gravel quickly. This motion is done in about a quarter of a second and it quite literally looks like he's scratching an itch or something. Do fish itch? Is this normal? What is my fish doing? I saw my small one do it today which is why I'm concerned.
