Dojo Question

I'm new to these guys, so I have a question for you Dojo owners. When I first got them, they spent a lot of time swimming back and forth and up and down. Now, after a month, they burrow under the rocks and aren't as active as they were and don't seem as frantically hungry at dinnertime. I don't know which behavior is normal. I have watched them closely and don't see any signs of disease, and when they are out, they spend their time "loaching around". Tank is (finally) cycled and water is OK except Ph is low at about 6.2. Should I be worried or have they just settled down to a normal routine?
