Good that you found him, they are famous for hiding in the strangest places.

My glass catfish in my tetra tank when I had it up always used to hide in the top of the log where you couldn't see him to save your life.... Glad ya found him though.....

my friend had a loach that would hide in her filter... i don't know how he got there, but he seemed to think it was his own personal condo.

He most likely has crawled into some decoration. They do that and get stuck so you have to be careful with what goes in their tank.

I have noticed that loaches love each others company. The more the merrier so they say. Unfortunately, I have a black kuhli that is hidden most of the time. I was told, that to see him more, to get another one. I will most likely do that, as I like the little guy. But trying to find them in the LFS is another matter. Just be careful if you ever have to treat the tank with meds. They don't take to medication too well, so you will have to watch it.

Loaches in general like to hide in many places. getting into the smallest crack they can fit into. My yoyo's use to go into the pump. Back when i had them a couple days ago that is.
