No, as they require different water parameters and I wouldn't trust africans with them anyway.
Do you already have the clowns? I'm pretty sure you do?

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

180 gallon, African cichlid tank
75 gallon, African cichlid tank
55 gallon, African cichlid tank
40 gallon, African cichlid tank
10 gallon, QT
30 gallon, Mollie tank

You'll need quite the large tank for clown loaches, as they get to over a foot as adults and need to be in a school.
