Don't fret, Alec. I've had my Clown Loaches for almost three years and they have weeks where I will hardly ever see them, except at feeding time, and then there are days that they are swimming back and forth constantly. They can be the most active fish in my tank at times. As long as they are eating, things are good.
One thing you can do to encourage them to come out more often is add more hiding spots. Yes, more! When I was young, I would freak out over my fish constantly hiding and I would destroy the caves they discovered to keep them from hiding. This would make them hide even more. The safer they feel, with more opportunities to hide, the more brave they will become.
Plus, they've only been in the tank for four days! They're ok. If they stop eating, then you can worry.
