Mixing Loaches

Currently in my tank I have four (4) Sewellia Lineolata (Reticulated Hillstream Loach). I bought two (2) Beaufortia Kweichowensis (Butterfly Hillstream Loach) that will soon be added to the tank. In the near future I am looking to get two (2) Gastromyzon Ocellatus (Spiney-Headed Hillstream Loach) for the tank also. Will these three different species of Hillstreams get along together?

My sources indicate that provided there is sufficient space for each loach to establish its "home" spot, they are fine together. As you have other species, I will assume you have knowledge of the very specific requirements for these very beautiful and unique fish.

And as I see you recently joined, may I welcome you to Tropical Fish Keeping forum. Glad to have you with us.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

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]
