Do fish have friends?

I know there are people that say clown loaches are full of personality. My question is, do they establish "bonds" with other clowns?

In time, I will need to find new homes for my two clowns. Not any time soon though. They're still small.
Has any one ever separated fish and noticed a difference in behavior?

I ask so that I'll know whether or not to relocate them together.
...or maybe it doesn't matter as long as they're each placed with other clowns?

3 Platies, 1 molly mut, 1 Siamese algae eater, 2 Neolamprologus Facicula cichlids

Many fish appear to form bonds with each other, and some seem completely unfazed at the removal or death of another. I personally have not kept many loaches though. What is their behaviour tending towards? Spending large amounts of time together and showing little aggression is usually a sign of a bond.

The fish will inherit the earth.
