Greetings fellow loachers

I have 3 questions:

1. I was thinking of adding a small spiny eel to my community tank of clowns, corys and plecos (2 otos, a farlowella and a regular pleco). I would like to hear from anyboby who has kept a spiny eel, good or bad experiences and especially with clown loaches. Note: this is not a fire eel but possiblbly a peacock eel.

2. I had a trio of small skunk loaches but had to remove them as they were biting the dorsal and tail fins of my corys. Anyone else have problems with skunks biting other fish? The clowns appeared to be more jumpy than normal as well but no evidence of bites.

3. I have had a group of 4 clowns
