My clowns put on a small show last night..

Since the cold front has come in, my clowns and cories have been more active than usual. They are always up to something, but I noticed that they have been more social in the last day or two.

I have 4 smaller clowns (about 2in from base of tail) and 1 larger one (3in). Mr Big Loach came out of his cave and decided to have a nap in the middle of the tank. One of the smaller guys came up to him and it seems like he was motioning to the big clown to get up and swim. Mr Big loach gave a quick little aggressive nudge as if to say "scram" and the little one left him alone. About 7 Seconds later, three of the four little ones came at Mr Big Loach out of nowhere from 3 seperate angles and "buzzed the tower" at top speed! Mr Big got up and joined the procession, and at that point I was on the floor in fits of laughter.

I don't know why
