It has been noted that overall loaches don't mind water current.
My tank has a normally set up HOB filter and also a powerhead that has a tube under the sand like a rivertank and a sponge intake at the other side. This creates a crossflow and water movement, but not near the rate of Martin Thoene's rivertanks.
"Most Powerheads and Power-Filters used in regular tanks give a tumbling effect to the water, but don't give a uni-directional flow. I felt that a fairly long tank was needed and a way of ensuring rapid intake of water from one end, that would then be blasted back down the tank."
It is a shock
