A little help , if you please

I currently have 4 clown loaches , with the biggest approaching the 4 inch mark . I have adored them from day one ! I am interested in getting some Botia Modesta (orange finned or blue) loaches and am wondering if any of you keep these two together . they will have a large tank (240 gals or up) and many already established caves and structures for hiding . The clowns are at this time in a 75 gal with some other fish . The other inhabitants are as follows : 1 angel , 1 columbian shark , 2 corys , one bristlenose plec . My plan is to move everyone into the big tank at the same time as I purchase the Blue loaches ( once it is all cycled and furnished) . Everyone in the 75 currently gets along fine and all have been together for at least 2 years . Do you all think this plan will work or will the addition of the new botias cause distress for any . I love all of my fish but I am in love with the loaches and think that with 4 or more of the Botias added it would be an amazing society to observe . If any of you have any behavioral info you can give me about the Modestas it would be greatly appreciated .
Thanks in advance
P.S. I will be away for a few days but will check this site when I return
