What bottom feeders with Skunk Loaches?NOT CORYs!

I should have listened to you guys!

I didn't think too much of it when one of my albino Corys turned up dead. He hadn't been doing so well for quite a while. Then I saw the other Cory being picked on by a Skunk followed a day or two later with my discovery of the Cory missing an eye. I had to put the Cory down.

DON'T mix Skunks and Corys in the same tank!

So the question now is . . .

What bottom feeders CAN coexist with Skunk loaches? I'd like to have something in the bottom of the tank other that Skunk and Clown loaches. ( I assume the Pleco doesn't count. )

Are there any Corys that can stand up for themselfs?

Is there any way to curb the aggression of Skunks? ( other than NOT having them )
