Unhappy 2 new sterbai corydoras not moving in quarantine tank

I'm a bit worried about my two new sterbai corydoras. I brought them home and acclimatised them to my 10 gal quarantine tank at around 4pm, since then they both have been sitting in the same spot and it is 9pm now....

I did add some aquarium salt tto the tank about 10 mins before adding them because I learned that a little salt in a quarantine tank is a beneficial tonic... I will be moving them to my 32 gallon after I'm done treating it for ich and I can be sure the cory's in the quarantine tank don't have ich...

Any suggestion? tips?

Thanks!8)

Don't add salt as cories are sensitive to it. You might want to do a water change to dilute the salt that is in the tank. They may just need time to adjust to their new environment. Do you have any plants or caves for the cories to hide in. Also, they like to be in groups so there only being 2 of them is probably also making them shy.
