Hy I bought my dad two clown loachs for christmas I'm hidding them in a tank in my room untill christmas :) I got them two days ago and I've onley seen them once. (I know thats not so bad but there so cute) I know that they can be shy but is there some way to help then ajust faster. I hoped they would be showing themselfs by Christmas (thats why I got them earliy) I'm feeding them a shrimp pellet, is there something that is irresistable to them, to temp them out :)

One other question I got one of those fake logs with the plants sticking out of it for their tank at Wall-Mart but the problem is it is hallow. I filled it with gravel and bought them a small cave thing too for them to hide in hoping that they would not try to squaze into the little log but of course they desided the log is better. *sigh* should I take it out or not worry about it and if I should take it out how do I get them to come out of it?
