I'm not sure physical modeling is the best way to make this kind of 
there are specific algorythm for this. but i don't know about there 
implementation in pd.

but with physical modeling, you should try to make a more complex model.

maybee someting like :

       / \
      /   \
    /       \
   /         \
  /           \
Fish 1      Fish2

the fish will not folow the same points, so they can be near or thay can 
split depending of the moment of the master mass.
