I have three Albino cories, and they would leave out the Emerald cory. He would swim near them and they would swim away. So I got another Emerald to up in a different tank and moved the one I had with the albinos, now they stay together.

Bettas: Rose, Sophia, Addie, Ghost, Buster, Holt, Aidan, and Mercutio!
Just my animals: 0.2 Cornsnakes, 0.2 Bearded Dragons, 1.0 Water Dragon, 2.2 Crested Geckos, 1.0 Tiger Salamander, 0.0.1 Tadpole, 0.0.2 Red Eared Slider Turtles, 0.0.1 Map Turtle, 0.0.2 Hermit Crabs, 1.0 Hamster, 1.0 Rabbit, 0.1 Horses, 2.2 Dogs, 0.2 Cats, Chickens, Ducks, Oscar Tank, Planted Bowl, 10 Gallon, 4x 0.5 Gallon, 5 Gallon, and Planted 25 Gallon Tank....Is that it?

Cories school best with matching cories. I'm of the opinion that you should have 6 or more of each type of cory you intend to have, even though they might not swim in tight schools--and many schooling fish don't unless they're insecure--they are still a social species that should be kept in a group or not at all.

Hopefully you can get some buddies for your loach soon.

I like to use the website http://www.aqadvisor.com/AqAdvisor.p...engthUnit=inch for my stocking options but it does not include the loaches on it...do I just guess by their size 1"/gallon?
