shy loaches

I bought 3 clown loaches a week ago,they seem really nervous and hide all the time . The only time they do appear is when all the lights are out but they can even detect me if I approach the tank and then hide again.Ther are no other fish in the tank but I would like to introduce something that would encourage them to be more active.any suggestions.Also feeding is a problem because I am unable to estimate how much of the food they are eating.Each loach is approx 1.5 ins the tank is 71 litres.Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks Terry
