Oops! my bad, I should have said red tailed shark. Do consider providing more hiding or resting areas,vegetables in their diet,and perhaps increased water movement or filtration. Also consider the sharks territorial tendencies. If your water tests consistently ..Zero ammonia, Zero Nitrites,and NitrAtes at twenty or below,, then nipping as stated ,could be the source of the problem. Many times we decorate or landscape the aquarium to please ourselves and while this is important,, We must also consider the fishes needs as well. If there are few places to explore,hide ,or rest,, the fish will all want to use what little is available and nipping would I think,, not be uncommon. Clown loaches are much like puppies in my view and are always exploring this area or that and may be the shark doesn't appreciate their antics especially after dark. As varied a diet as is possible will always result in healthier fish. Frequent small water changes when in doubt,maybe twice or three times a week will not hurt anything and is cheap insurance in regards to water quality. Much easier to change water than to treat for pathogens unknown. ICH would not necessarily be first indication that fish was ill.
