Clown loaches and stocking

I have a 20 gallon aquarium. It has a lot of rocky hide-outs, caves, amazon swordplants, and cryptocoryne wendetii's. My tank only has two individual inch long female Kribensis. I would like to know if I could keep 3-5 clown loaches in my tank. I realize they can grow very large, but they are only 1.5 inches at the petshop now and I've heard they are slow growers. Could I keep 3-5 loaches in my tank? If so, how many and until they reach what size. If no, what would you reccommend for fish?
