Clown Barbs Hiding?

Hey All,

24 hours ago I added 5 clown barbs and 4 clown loaches to my tank. I expected the loaches to hide, however the barbs seem to be schooling with the loaches and hiding as well.

Is this typical? I thought barbs tended to be bold?

24 hours is not near long enough for any species to really show their true attitudes.

Thanks, I wondered if this was the case, but I had never seen a mid level fish be shy this long. Any idea when should I expect to see that behavior shift?

Fish can be shy for days even. Its completely normal. Let them settle in.
