Loaches & Bristlenose Fry

Hi all. This is my first post. I've been a lurker for a while though.

I have 2 Schistura Mahnerti loaches in a 29 gallon with 1 Opaline Gourami, 5 Checkered Barbs and a False Siamese Algae Eater. I would like to put some bristlenose fry from my 55 in there to feast on the algae. But, I'm concerned how the loaches will receive them. I have seen them occasionally chasing the gourami. The fry are just over an inch long! But, I think if I put them in the "brown algae glass" tank, they would have a huge growth spurt!!!

Thanks all!

Jan
