CLOWN FIGHT

Hello...

I have 4 small clown loaches (approx 2.5 inches ea)in a community tank.All are healthy & happy 99% of the time.Lately I've noticed that after a feeding,2 of them(I think it's always the same two/hard to tell)pair off & start "sparring" or fighting(mouth to mouth,side by side,vibrating ect.)It lasts about 5 minutes & no one gets hurt.
(then the two are friends again).
Does anyone have any insight as to why this is happening?
Any opinion is welcome.

Thanks...

Augie
