Schools out!

Whilst surfing, I found a couple of things of interest about fish schooling behaviour and related aggression. Thought we could relate it to some of the behaviour in our loaches. Check out these 2 well-written articles.

If you follow the link,you can read that article, then click on the link "Aggression in and out of School" in it's first line. That takes you to the other article about Tiger Barbs, which is quite thought provoking.
