Loaches in Cichlid Tank

I just got a Orange-finned Loach (Botia Modesta) about a week ago. I put him in my African and My most dominant African went right at him. But my loach got after him and show him that he (the loach) needs respect. The loach has a little sratch and the Dominant African has a couple scales missing. Right now everything is fine. The African is still the most dominant African in the tank but when he see's the loach he doesn't get so cocky. So that just goes to show that loaches can hold they own. At least mine can. -Matt P.S. The Loach was in a tank with Convicts before and he held them off. So i guess he is pretty tuff and he is only about 2 to 3 inches.
