Many Loaches will hide at first, until they become comfortable, then there are others which seem to explore the tank at first and then become more sedentary, retreating to hiding places. I found my Kuhli Loaches were like this. Although I have about 9 of them in a 55 Gallon tank, I rarely see them.
I have found that Loaches are out more when they have more hiding places. This may seem backwards, but when they know they can hide whenever they like, they're more likely to venture forth.
Many Loaches are also nocturnal. Try viewing them by night, with your moon lights on.

My 8ft clown loach tank has a 6 foot long cove/cave that they congregate in and out of. They also have a few dozen pvc pipes that they nestle/rest/sleep in.
Like already mentioned, low lighting helps a lot.
