loaches hiding

my 3 loaches http://www.loaches.com/species_pages/botia_sp_myanmar.html
are now hiding all the time. first I thought it was thier tank mates so I took the fish back to the store and got some gold wonder killes, a blue ram and a red flame gourami. There is also an angelicus pleco, a vampire shrimp and 3 rainbows in the tank. None of the fish are aggressive toward each other except the killies to each other. Only one of the three loaches come out now, they use to play all the time. I don't know what's going on. the tank is 37 gallons and heavily planted. I was thinking of moving them to a smaller, very peaceful tank for observation but I don't know
thanks.
