loaches and heaters

I recently set up a big tank. A more experienced aquarist told me a while back to be careful about high-wattage heaters since otos and plecos could scorch their mouths if they were hanging on the heater when it came on. So before I set up my tank, I ordered a heater protector (a plastic sheath) that my Tronic 150 slides into.

Guess who has decided that the sheath makes an excellent hangout! My yoyo loaches. Can they get hurt doing this?

They have two perfectly nice caves.
