Stocking level considerations

Okay, well I love loaches and want as many as I can fit into my 55g... I use an eheim 2213 with another internal pump connected to a spray bar. I figure that because they're bottom feeders they'll kinda clean up after themselves. I also figure that if they're all loaches they'll get less stressed than if they were a mix of say cichlids and loaches and characins and barbs etc. At the moment I have 4 clowns, 4 modesta, 3 striata, 2 skunks, 2 yoyos and 2 kuhlis (and a pleco and some guppies). I realise that the clowns and modestas will get way too large for the size of the tank but in time they'll get something roomier. anyway the question is; could I add another 3 clowns, 3 striata
