Antisocial Loach.....

I have now 4 clown loaches in my 55gal community tank. I bought 2 first then added a 3-4 in clown then just recently acquired another big one. The 3rd one I bought, never really took to the other loaches, he just spends all his time hanging out in a little cove with my crayfish. Even now that I got one more he still wont come out. Ive now had him a few months and water quality is fine, others are quite social but he wants nothing to do with them. Is this normal?
Also, how big do dojos get? I bought one that is at least 8-9 in and about 1.5-2 in in diameter. He is just HUGE compared to my other 2 which are only about 3 in in length.... How old do they get? He seems to eat a great deal, how much and what to feed this monster?
