Clown Loaches with Synodontis Multipunctatus

Hi. I have a 70+ gallon corner tank. From what I remember, I think the footprint area is a little bigger than the footprint for a standard 55-gallon. I am thinking of placing my 5 clown loaches and 4 synodontis multipunctatus in there. The loaches range from about 4" to about 2". The synodontis are about 1.5" to 2". Since they both types of fish live on the bottom, I was wondering if they would get along. I will also be adding 5 frontosas that are currently about 1.5" to 2". The tank will have a sand bottom, some rock structures and a couple caves. Does anyone have experience with clown loaches and synodontis multipunctatus together? Any general comments on this setup? Thank you for any input.
