That usually means it feels exposed and lonely. Get it more friends and hiding places. Also, how big is your aquarium? The minimum tank size is a 55 gallon aquarium.

If at all possible clown Loaches need to be in groups of three or more. They also need caves and plenty of hiding places. eventually you will need a tank bigger than 55 gallon but it's a good start.
