Would a loach be happy in my tiny tank?

I recently started a nice little 5 gallon aquarium with the works (filter, pump, etc). I have a male and female betta in there so far and was researching to find another fish or two to go in with them. I read somewhere that some species of loach are non-aggressive and docile and could live peacefully with bettas. Is this true? If so, what species would you recommend. Should I get 1 or 2? How long does it take for a 5 gallon tank to cycle and be stable for additional fish? On a side note, does anyone know anything about albino frogs? I have a well established 35 gallon tank with 5 tetras and 2 gouramis and wanted to add a frog or two. Do they require special food or an island to rest on, etc?
