Questions on Hillstream/Butterfly loach

I saw them on sale in Big Al's here. I was tempted to get 1 or 2.

But I've read on LOL that they need low temperature so I probably can't keep them. Is this absolutely true? And what temp range are they comfortable with?

Also if temp is not a prob, will they be comfortable in my 20 gal with powerheads (I know they like currents)? Current inhabitants: 2 clowns, few barbs and tetras.

Do they eat algae or what do they eat? :)
