Harmony at last, or will it last?

I bought two zebra loaches several months ago for snail control (a complete success) but had to separate them because Big Loach (4 inches) chased 'Lil Loach (2.5 inches) without mercy when they were initally together in one (20 gal) tank. I'm moving from a 20 gal. (where the big loach lives) to a 29 gal. tank, and during the transition had to put both loaches back together, in a 15 gal. tank with 5 Giant Danios and a 4-5 inch suckermouth catfish. The loaches are obviously very happy to be back together again and take turns chasing each other in a non-threating way and then chase the Danios. Is this just a honeymoon phase or is it a good chance they will continue to be compatible with each other now that they have the Danios to provide good dither activity?
Big Loach has been a great companion to my 11 plus
