Pseudogastromyzon myersi

I encountered one of these at the lfs and bought it along with two Beaufortis (spelling?) at a low price of 6.99 and placed them in my "small" loach tank. (It is a 55 with Darios, Pulchras, skunks, lots of danios, one krib, 2 bristlenose plecos, and a sid. For filtration there is a penguin 330 and a fluval 303. Temp is 76 F) Does anyone who have these fish or similar hillstreams know of any troubles with this setup? This is my first time with hillstreams. I lost one of the Beauforti's last night, but I think that had to do with the lady at the store crushing him with her net. The other two seem fine so far. Also, what can I feed them besides algae and other plant matter?

Thanks,
Br
