I would like to move the loach over, but concerned about its eventual size, especially if I get a group of them.
About the Tetras disappearing, we think the loach kills them occasionally, we started with 5 now we have 3.
I haven't previously commented on the fish mentioned in post #1 as we were dealing with other issues and I got the sense you were fairly aware of the issues. Now's the time though.

Loach are highly social fish and absolutely must be in a group. Five or six is the recommended minimum, though one can manage sometimes (depending upon species and space) with 4. The eventual size of the Clown Loach is an issue that has to be addressed before you get more. This fish will need a 6-foot tank. There are other species more suitable to 4-foot tanks, I have four of them.

Almost any of the tetra will work, with your water.
