Hillstream Loaches compatible with Albino Bushynose Pleco?

I have a 20G tank with a single Albino Bushynose Pleco, I plan to move my two Beaufortia into that tank. Do you think they will get along? My pleco is about 2inches long.

Hiding loaches

Help with growing alegae for Hillstream loach

I read the Martin's webpage on glowing algae and tried the "secret ingredient" as well :lol: . I did get something that looked like an algae bloom, the water turned green and the rocks were covered by a thin green layer. However, I find it odd that the layer of comes off when I touch the rock, it wa...
