Clown Loaches would need a tank to themselves in my opinion, perhaps with a few dither fish (I use Congo Tetras).
Minimum recommended shoal size for Clown Loaches is six (preferably more).
Minimum recommended tank size for 6-7 Clown Loaches is 6' x 2' x 2' containing 180 US gallons / 150 UK gallons / 700 litres (preferably larger).
Recommended Temp 78-82F.
Watch out for Whitespot (they typically get it when newly introduced).
They can demolish plants so a planted tank may not be possible.
I keep six in a 110g (6' x 18" x 18") but that's because information was non-existant and I was actually recommended a 3ft tank 25 years ago.
They can be kept in a smaller tank than the minimum given but will be stunted and although it was once the norm this is not considered acceptable these days.
