Loach tank idea..

I just switched the oppupants from my 10gl. tank to my new 30 gl. (long) tank. There's a lot of room in the tank, the 1 inch clown loach doesn't know what to make of everything! He's poking around in a very realistic looking ceramic cave, and taking laps. He's eating, so are the danios and cherry barbs that are in the tank.
I now have enough room to make this a mostly loach tank, and I'm not worrying about yhe clown. He's under 2 inches, and won't be getting to 10 inches anytime soon.
I'll probably get this clown a friend or two.
I've read about Dojos, but they aren't very hardy (or at least I gathered that from 2 trustworthy LFSs). They both said Botias are much more hardy than Dojos.
So, after browsing and researching, I concluded my loach haven will end up like this:
2 or 3 Clowns (starting off small, 1-2 inches)
Yo-Yo (I picked out a nice cave for a yo-yo)
3 or 4 Skunk Loaches.
I'm also thinking of 2 zippers....but I don't have much info on these. Are they hardy? Peaceful?
