New loach not eating

I hope someone can help as I am a complete novice at trpoical fish.

I recently added a loach and a silver dollar to my tank to accompany the angel fish that was already in there. All the fish seemed happy, so I added a further 6 fish of varying breeds to the tank last week.

Since the arrival of the new fish the loach, which swam about happily before and suckered to the side of the tank etc, has hardly moved and does not seem to be eating. It spends most of it's time hiding in a fake coral in the corner of the tank.

I have no idea whether this is due to the arrival of the new fish, or something else. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Many thanks
