clown loaches

hi guys
got a question. i have a tank thats 64 litres and i wanted to get some clown loaches but obviosly the tanks to small to hold them but in about 6 months time i will be getting a much bigger tank that they could live in quite happily. i was thinking could i get some clown loach (medium) to put in my tank just until i get my bigger tank.
the ones at the pet store are only about 1.5" and i'm ive heard they grow quite slowly so do you recon it would be ok for a while and if so how many would you reccomend?
thank you.

Sorry, that tank is too small and crowded to hold them even for a few months. Honestly, too, it's best not to plan for future aquariums. Most people mean well when they say they'll be getting a bigger tank but often life/money gets in the way. I'd wait until you actually have the big tank set up .

They grow kind of quickly at first, actually. It slows down after initial growth spurts but those babies will get big fast .
