New clown loaches very shy! Why?
I just got 4 clown loaches yesterday with a albino rainbow shark in my 75 gallon. The tank has been cycled for a long time and has had 4 platies, 1 gourami, 1 guppy, and a clwon pleco in it before I added the loaches and shark.
I moved the platies, gourami, and guppy into another tank and just left the pleco in there before adding the loaches and shark. The shark seems to be doing pretty good hes just swimming around scavenging the substrate and sometimes swimming to the middle level of the tank.
The loaches keep hiding and are very frightened every time I approach the tank. They come out on occasion but only one at a time. Is this normal when introducing loaches to a tank?
