As far as I am aware, neither loaches nor corydoras actually eat algae. There are many different species of loach and corydora, but none of the species I am familiar with actually eat algae as part of their diet. I don't think any of the commonly available species need driftwood to munch on.
If by sucker cat you mean otocinclus, I don't know if they need driftwood or not. I've never seen it mentioned, though. That species is very
sensitive to water parameters and can often starve to death, just as a precaution. They are all wild-caught, and most tanks just don't have enough algae to support them long-term.
