I can toss in that I love clown loaches but they are very prone to parasite infection and unless you are very, very active with your tank you are asking for trouble. I am not saying don't get them but that they do require extra effort.
I have an albino bristlenose pleco and he is great! I suggest getting one, maybe not albino but the bristlenose works great.
One final note is that while black phantoms are my favorite tetra they don't seem to be the hardiest. That mixed with the clown loach being prone to ich and other parasites might make for trouble.
Keep in mind I am pointing out negative factors from things I have learned in my own experience. I have been involved in the hobby for about half a year now so I am still pretty new.
