I haven't even seen them yet thanks jerry
Good luck and let us know what happens.
Whilst it can be a bit worrying not seeing your new Clowns out and about, it doesn't necessarily mean something is wrong. On the whole, the bigger ones tend to be much more secretive and hide away quite a lot. A good example is Marge, our 11.5" Clown. After introducing her to our existing shoal, it was 7 weeks (yes 7!!!) before she ventured out from behind a giant piece of bogwood and starting feeding and intergrating with the others. After this time, her confidence started to grow day-by-day, and now she is boss of the tank. It may be that yours are still settling in to their new home, and don't feel confident enough to venture out. Also, you haven't got very many of them yet (I know you plan to add more) so the fact that there isn't a big shoal of them might not be helping either. Do you have the ability to dim the lighting on the tank or use blue moon tubes? It would be worth trying this as they very much appreciate lower lighting levels (particularly the bigger specimens). It might be worth staying up late and observing for an hour or so after lights out - you may be pleasantly surprised to see a few 'stripes' moving about.
Hope everything turns out to be ok.

Hopefully every thing is well. I will post when I find something out.
on the other hand, large putrifying clown loaches have the most revolting stench in the universe. the amount of poison their decomposing bodies would create in your tank will first make the rest of the fish sick and then kill them as well. truly revolting mushy bodied dead loach.....they are greasy. have you ever had a dog that liked to roll around on top of long dead squished up ground hogs or porcupines or raccoons? well, if you have, or if anyone has, then they'll never forget that stenchy grease the dog gets coated in.
similar but loach is much worse.
