For Newbies with hiding loaches

Hi all

In the two years that I have been visiting this forum (pretty much every day), I've seen a lot of questions about hiding loaches and how to get them into the open. If the truth be known, I've posted a lot of those questions myself! My loaches have always been the hidey type, and I tried everything to get to see them more often, to no avail .... dither fish, tunnels, lowered light, you name it. I even installed over six feet of networked pvc pipe! Don't get me wrong, the loaches love the pipes, to the extent that they never left them!

A couple of months ago, I resigned myself to the fact that I wasn't going to dispell the nocturnal nature of these animals. B
