Weird yoyo stuff

I had to remove a male krib from my krib tank because he was terrorizing the other male. The only place I had to put him was my 75 gallon loach tank. This is where the weird behavior comes in..

I should have waited longer, but I put my yoyo loach in with my clowns after 4 days in QT. The krib has settled in nicely and isn't harassing any of the loaches. As a matter of fact, the yoyo loach has taken to hanging out with him! When I say hanging out, I mean just that. Follows him around the tank and also swims in parallel with him. More often than not rubbing up against him. The krib doesn't seem to mind and they often eat together from the same places.

Has anyone seen this type of behavior before?

Loaches are soooo cool. :-)
