Sids with Apistogramma cacatuoides?

Hi folks:
If anyone has cichlid and loach experience, I'd be very grateful! I recently added two severum to my 100g clown loach tank, and have since become hooked on cichlids! So I'm setting up a small (25g) cichlid tank with 4 Apistogramma cacatuoides (cuckatoo dwarf cichlids.) They are small, non-aggressive (for cichlids, anyway), and pretty easy for a newbie cichlid person like myself to take care of.

The thing is, I still love loaches, and have some in all of my tanks, and would really love to add a few to this set-up. Sids look really great... small, and they have the same basic water perameter requirements as the apistogramma cacatuoides. Doe
