Can loaches be mixed with cichlids

Hello all:

It's been quite a while since I've posted here. I'ver recently moved from Toronto to another part of Ontario (Kitchener) where the water is drawn from underground sources rather than the lake, and is much harder and more alkaline. As a result, most serious hobbyists around here keep African cichlids. I still haven't set up an aquarium but plan to do so soon. My dream was to keep Discus fish but that doesn't seem possible out here. I may have to set up a Cichlid tank instead, even though I have no experience with them. I have five very healthy and growing clown loaches in Toronto, ready to be transferred when my tank is set up. So, my question, finally, is:
Can clown loaches dwell in the same tank as African Cichlids? Does anybody have experience with this?
