Help My Clown Loaches
I I just got some clown loaches and they are in my tank finnished Acclimating and I noticed 1 out of 4 of them hides behind a rock I have a lot. Whereas the other 3 are swimming around the front of the tank having a great time. Also when he is at the back of the tank he sits on the gravel. If it helps my water parameters are ph 7.5. Ammonia 0ppm. Nitrite 0ppm. Nitrate 5ppm. I used a drip loop aclomation which took about an hour and a half. Please help me I am really worried about him. Do you think it might be because he is new to the tank and he is just scared he started swimming round with the other 3 about.

I'd give it a few days. I'm not familiar with clown loaches specifically, but fish being introduced into a new home sometimes need time to settle. Leave the lights off tonight, don't feed them. See how they are tomorrow.

If they've been in there less than a couple days, then don't worry. It sounds like these were just put in the tank today?
