Oscars schooling?!

So I was at Petsmart browsing for a new heater for the 10g. Whenever I am there I like to cruise past the tanks to see what's new. I saw the oddest thing this time. There are several tanks full of juvenile oscars in this particular shop, and one towards the center of the wall had about six juvies that were all bunched up, so close each was touching the next and moving around the tank as a unit.

They were so funny! Have any of you ever seen juvenile Oscars do this?

Maybe when my tank obsession grows in size to the BIG tanks, I'll think about getting one or two Oscars :)

I've seen it a lot in all kinds of fish store tanks. From what I understand, oscars, like many cichlids, school together when young and get more aggressive towards their own kind when older.
