There be Clowns here!

Last night I decided to add a few rocks to the tank to provide some additional decor (playthings) for the clowns.

Well, I accidentally bumped the "loach motel" (a big piece of mopani that the 7 clowns and 3 dojo's live under) and all hell broke loose.

One of the dojo's promply dug under the gravel so only his barbels were sticking out of the substrate (funny to see), the other two dojos swam back and forth for a while and the clowns went on a clicking frenzy for a few hours.

Things seem to have settled down quite a bit today, and the loach motel is a bit more open, allowing us to peek in on them from time to time.
