My Altruistic Clown?!

I am giving my Clown the benifit of the doubt on this one. I was watching the other night shortly after the evening feed when the largest of my Clowns decided to do his Cichlid imitation. He started picking up gravel piece by piece and moving it around. Ultimately he was digging for a piece of food that had worked it's way down. When he finally got to it the Plecostomus came up a nudged him out of the way and ate the newly found food. I figure either the Pleco stole the morsile that the Clown had worked so hard for or the Clown was just helping out his tank mate. Even though I know the "theft" is more accurate I still like to think the Clown was just helping out. There is just no end to the enjoyment you can get from watching these guys.
