Just wanted someone's opionion on my loaches. Are they shy or happy. Originally I had 3 Clown Loaches & 2 Corycats in a 30 gallon tank with only one hollow log for them to hide in .

At the same time I rearranged my tank, added more rocks and plants and created 2 caves for loaches to hide in. They hide ALL THE TIME! I hardly ever see them, which is OK, if they are happy.
