Heard sids clicking for the first time!

I've always stated on here that all Botias except for sidthimunki and nigrolineata are known to click. I can now add sids to the list of clickers since I sat down to watch them eat algae wafers earlier and they were definitely emitting clicking noises while eating. What's more interesting is that when the sidthimunki clicks the whole fish seems to go erect for a split second. It's almost like they're suffering a brief electric shock.
