Loach companions

Recently I added a Satanoperca leucosticta to my tank with the loaches. This fella is so peaceful and low-key, I am hoping some of it rubs off on the loaches. If I walk by the tank during feeding time the loaches will all swim for cover, but my new buddy just stays put and eats. He's not afraid of anything. He's also got a lot of growing to do. He's 31/3 inches now but 10 inches is his target length. Good thing he has a kindly disposition despite his shovel-sized mouth.

Anybody ever hear of 'dither fish' for loaches?
