Hi all,

I currently have two loaches, 2 danios, and five cardinal tetras in a 10g tank. All the fish are half an inch to 3/4 inch, but one of my Clown loaches is around a inch and a half. At first, I only had one loach but he just sat at the back of my tank on the bottom. After reading about loaches I decided to get a small one so he could have a friend. The new Loach (which is half an inch long) just sits in the same corner(sometimes on top of the other Loach :) ), or the other back corner. I notice that when Im out of the room they happily clean the bottom of my tank and swim about.... am I really that ugly to make them hide when I enter the room?!? I want to make them feel like they can swim about with out them thi
