I have 6 Swartzi and they are really awesome but sadly they are also very timid. They hang out together under the overhang from a plastic decoration. It's a real bummer. They share the bottom of the tank with a decent-sized pleco that is very "get off my lawn" when they start any shenanigans though, so maybe they will get a little more active when he moves into his new larger home in the coming week or two. Do you have other fish that hog their territory?
Actually, the other day I saw them from across the room zip to the top one by one in quick succession, breach the surface, then right back down to their hiding place. It was pretty cool.
