n00b just making sure everything is okay

I bought two Amanos the other day. The first two days they were zooming around the tank generally looking shrimpy, the past two days they've been hiding up under my rock and I have to lift the rock to visually see them.

water tests are all great, temp is at 79.5 the other fish in the tank as indicated in my signature were not bugging them at all, I just want to make sure this is normal behavior and not something I should look into further.

Jut trying to be a good shrimp keeper as I want to expand into a full invert tank in a few months once I get the hang of it.

Restarting after a short hiatus!

Hiding is normal for shrimp. I wouldn't be worried about it unless they are acting stressed (such as darting around abnormally). Just watch and make sure that they are acting normal. Most shrimp like to hide, especially when they are getting used to their new habitats.
