Saddle Back Loach

I discovered 3 saddle back loaches (Homaloptera Orthogoniata) at a LFS last Friday and have them in my Q tank now. The LFS guy said they should go alright in my main tank (26C/78F, fairly good circulation and 5 happy Chinese hillstreams already in residence) but that they are hard to please food wise. So far they haven't even moved much from behind the filter and haven't eaten at all. I have only tried frozen blood worms, flake, and Tetra brine shrimp treats. Is anyone else keeping these beautiful little loaches and, if so, what has your experience been?
