Clown Rugby?

Just a cute little story about my new clowns. I have a total of 11 clowns now in my 55 gallon tank. Six of them are only one inch long and the other 5 are about 3 inches. When I added the small ones last week the larger ones instantly accepted them and gave them the "Loach Cave" at night. Thats one of the reasons I love clowns they seem to have a real sense of cimmunity. Anyways I always drop Parboiled Cucumbers in for my royal pleco. Well one of the small clowns got hold of one of the seeds and held it sideways out of its mouth. It started swimming around with it like this and soon all 5 of the other small clowns started chasin it trying to get the seed. This went on for nearly a half an hour. It looked like they were playing rugby or something:)
