odd clown loach behavior ???

My 6 clown loaches are doing some strange stuff, at least to me. I have a 75g planted tank and my 6 clown loaches like to go to the very top of the
tank and "root" along the glass just above the water line. they make a very loud popping, slurping, clicking noise when they do this. this usually only occurs before the lights come on in the morning. it doesn't happen too often during the day. the 2 big angelfish and rainbow fish come up and watch like something strange is going on, but they do not do this. i have looked where they are doing this and i cannot see anything on the glass they could possibly be trying to eat. what could they possibly be doing? is this an indicator of a problem in the tank?

the 6 loaches are about 2 inches each. i've had them all for about a year. they
