Is this the Happy Loach Dance - Video

Hi

I have taken some video of my 2 clown loaches in their new home. They moved in last night. After initially sitting and panting, then hiding at the back of the tank they finally came out when the room lights were turned out last night. This morning I awoke to find them out the front of the tank and swimming around quite happily. It is now 3pm here and they have been out and about all day. I am wondering if the swimming up and down the sides of the tank, as is on the video, is a happy dance or a stressed one? Click the link below - have tried to make is as small a file as we could for downloading.
