I have 4 clown loaches in a 45 gallon tank. There are also 5 gouramis, a molly and a tri-color shark. Until a few days ago, there were two angels and an additional shark—now all dead. I witnessed a loach nipping the tail of the shark until he went into death throws. My fiancee saw them nipping at the angels. The dead fish all appeared healthy.

Last night one of the loaches was going after my remaining shark, so I pulled him from the tank. I am curious to see if he was "the leader of the pack" and if this will pacify the aggression.
