adding new Clowns to an established group

Are there any problems with adding 2 more Clown Loaches to a group of 6 that have been together for over a year? My 6 are no larger than 2 inches each. I would really like to have 8 of them. My tank is a 75 gallon, and has plenty of room for 2 more.

My current fish load is:

2 large Angelfish
2 large Rainbowfish
5 Zerbra Danios
5 Red-Eye Tetras
6 Clown Loaches
----
3 Otto
2 Farowella
1 Whiptail

Also, there is plenty of free swimming room and plenty of hiding places . The right side of my tank is a huge thicket of Crypts, Sags, and Vals...with dwarf sag carpeting the bottom in about a 3 inch layer. The left side is mainly free swimming room with some tall Crytps in the back left corner. There are also some African root pieces around.

thanks.
