new clown loaches

Dear Jeff,

I just bought 3 clown loches a week ago, I've always liked this fish but during my whole 10 years of fish raising hobby I've never had one. The new guests seem to be fine until now, but the real problem is that they seemed very frightened when I got them and they haven't eaten anything until now. At least I didn't see them eating anything. They're hidding most of the time. I also would like to perform a major water change next week with a change of decorations but now I don't know if this is a good idea for the new loaches or should I wait for more time. A final question,:" do you think it's better to buy them a fourth mate or not?" thanks
