New Clown loaches with exsisting

Hi All,

I've finally completely got rid of the ICK problem which took away 2 of my 5 clown loaches.

And after giving my tank some time to stable again after the ICK is gone, I've went out and got 2 more replacement clown loaches.

after a day now, the 2 new loaches has bonded with one of the exsisting ones, and is comming out to play by day even. but there are 2 of the exsisting ones that are always hiding and won't eat. They just jam themselfs up into a tight tight corner and just sit in there... they're breathing really really slowly, but their color are dark and rich, so I don't think they're under much stress... has anyone experienced this before?

NOTE: the clown loaches that I bought new and old ones are all from this local Fish shop that
