Can Yoyo loaches get along with (6) Peppered cory and a common pleco? Its in a 75 gallon tank. I don't know if there's a rule of thumb on the number of bottom dwellers one should have. I am aware the Yoyo love to be in groups, so I would get 6 at least.

Im not claiming to be an expert on this matter but can speak from personal experience. I currently have 9 bronze corys, 5 yoyo loach and a GBP all living together in the same aquarium, they all get along just fine! Theres plenty of room in the bottom of my tank as it has quite a large foot print of 48" x 21" with a sand cap.The corys and yoyos can often be found sitting together quite peacefully and they even forrage togehter.
Im sure someone else will chip in with another contribution soon enough and then you will e able to make a clear informed decision

I have a 75 gallon fully planted tank with 2 huge pieces of driftwood in it.
I have 5 yoyo loaches, 1 checkerboard loach, 3 green cories as well as shrimp and nerite snails. Those are just the bottom feeders, lol.
They all live peacefully in my aquarium.

Alright, so far positive experiences. I don't have a fully planted aquarium, so I might just have to providing a few more hiding spots so they don't fight over the few I have.

i kept yoyo loaches...monkeys of the water world...
i found they would often hang with the corys,and even the tiger barbs.
just give them oodles of hiding places,they feel more secure like that.
beware of any decoration you use that have small holes,they will cram
themselves in the smallest of places !
have fun with them.
