my clowns update

My 3 medium sized clowns have been in their new fully planted 55gal community tank for 1 month now . In their old personal 30gal tank, they never hid, but the tank had no lighting . Now they hide in their hollow log while the lights are on (pity l miss these guys), and come out to feed . The clowns haven't damaged the plants, only occasionaly ripping up a bit of chain sword when feeding (no probs). Also l havent seen a snail for around 2 weeks . l know these guys will come out and play soon, l think their still protesting over being man-handled in the move . Their inmates include 6 black phantom tetras, 6 kuhli loaches, 2 ottos, 1 flying fox . No fights, and the kuhlies love swimming into the clown log . l would love to add some striata loaches, but only one LFS has them and they charge $40 each Australian- UNREAL ! Just added some more hiding spots, but l really can't wait for my clowns to come out and say hello, l use 3 light strips, more than they
