Kuhli Loaches finally came out of hiding!

I've had a pair of Kuhli loaches for about 5 months now (I'd like to add a third but will need a fish or two to pass on before I have the space). They use to come out a lot, but then they stopped. About a month ago I started adding live plants (cryptocorne, sword & java fern which replaced plastic plants, then two weeks ago I reorganized their living space so that their cave is in the middle of the densely planted tank and is therefore more shady. Just last week they started coming out a lot all day long! I love this but wonder if it was the addition of plants or the change in tank set-up that led to their change in activity.

Any guesses?
