orang finned loach and yo yos

I just aquired two orange finned loaches which I just fell in love with. They are in a quarantine tank right now about a week now. In my main tank 55 gallon I have 4 yo yo loaches who i adore and 1 albine shark, two paradise gouramis, 2 jelly bean parrtos and 1 butis butis.

I've read I should have a minimum of 4 red finned loaches. Would the eventual presence of 4 yo yo loaches sufice? So a total of 6 loaches (4 yo yos and 2 red finned) I'm thinking about getting 90 gallon tank eventually, but not right now. Im assuming they will all get along since they are in the botia FAMILY. i give plenty of hiding places for each loach. I just made with pvc pipe a rock covered tube for the two in quarantine. Also they have plenty of rocks for hiding!!!!!!

Please advise from p
