Question Corydoras Or Loaches?

So, i want to get some sort of fish that is a bottom dweller for my 29 gallon. the question is, should i get cories or zebra/kuhli loaches? I really like both, but would the loaches hurt my 2 african dwarf frogs? Any feedback is welcome, thanks!

I have 9 cories and 3 yoyo loaches. But my tank is HEAVILY planted with tons of hiding spots. If u have enough hiding places, get both!!!

for me, a large school of loaches are the bomb and will look fab in any tank! However, go with fish that work for you currant fishes, tank and more importantly - you taste!

540L/140G - 'Tidal Jungle' (Crabs) | 254L/67g - 'Backwater Pool' (Fish/Snails) | 96L/25G - ''Twisted Minds" (Fish/Snails)

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.
