Cichlids and dojo loaches?

Dojella

Wondering if you have experience with dojo loaches and cichlids together. I've got my two ~8" dojo loaches in a 55 gallon and would like to add my nine ~3" cichlids. I'm thinking since the dojos are already in the tank and the cichlids will be the new guys, there shouldn't be any problems. Right now the cichlids are in a 20 tall (i.e. not a lot of square footage of bottom territory space) and they are starting to get more territorial as they get older/bigger. Ideas? There are 3 of each: electric yellow, P. socoloffi, and a third kind I am not sure of. Brown/tan leopard pattern (see my album). The guy at my LFS said they should all get around 6".

I believe Dojos need a cooler temp(50-77F) than most Cichlids.
