Sleeping Loaches

I was wondering if any of the loachers here might know any info about loaches sleeping.Are they in some type of trance or something like that?Do they just take "naps" as part of their regular sleeping pattern?I've already tapped the glass next to a loach that was doing this and they don't seem to wake up as quickly(sounds like myself!)as other sleeping fish.Do any other types of fish sleep for short periods like this?Why do they lay on their side like that?I've never seen any of my other fish doing that.
