Sid Behavior Changing Over Time.

I think I've had my sids now for about five years. I stared with 18, and now have 13.

Especially after a partial water change they will school from one end of the 80 gal tank to the other. When I purchased them, they had that wonderful Sid playful behavior. Now, they seem to have a lot more "spunk." They will purposely bump each other as they rapidly school, and will also do so with other fish (Kuhlii loaches, Burmese-Border Sand Loaches, Botia Angelicus, and a single Walking Tetra). I find this surprising.
