In a 4-foot 55g tank, you could have anywhere from 5-6 (if one species only) up to 30. This may limit other substrate fish though.
On the loach, as has been mentioned, this is not good. A group of 5+ is required or the fish will likely be stressed. And they get large, 8-12 inches in a 6 foot tank [minimum], but some clown loach can reach up to 16 inches. There are other species in the Botia genus that remain around 4-5 inches, and there are the dwarf species someone mentioned already. Many of these are in our profiles, second tab from the left in the blue bar [you can click the shaded names for that profile]. Also many cory species are included.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
