Loaches out and about after plant trimming

I cleaned the 110g tank this weekend. I removed a gigantic sword and most of the stem plants (I just left one cutting of each species to start over) because they had taken over the tank. The whole tank is now bright in light and it's looking good. An unexpected (and most appreciated) side effect of this trimming was that now the clown loaches seem to be hanging out a whole lot more. We have 7 clown loaches in that tank, the largest is about 6 inches long, but they always hide. Day and night they sleep in their little caves. But since the clearing, some of them have been swimming around, doing the loachy dance (it's been a while since I saw that).
I wonder why the change in behavior? Do your loaches prefer open space or surface cover?
