Clown loach tank question?

I was finally able to get some decent size clowns. I got three of them, two of them are 2.5" and the other is 3". I'm keeping them in my 55g for now until Jan of 2015 when I will get my 125g. I know there slow growers so will they be alright in the 55g until I get the 125 all set up? I'm very particular about clean water so I do 2 water changes a week on this tank. The 125 will have either a fx6 or 3 aquaclear 110s for filtration. Also I've been feeding bloodworms, brine shrimp, flake and granuales so far for food. Anything else I should be feeding them?

125g South American planted cichlid tank.
20g Quarantine tank.

You can feed them cucumber slices too. Just slice them about an inch thick and microwave them for 30 seconds and drop them in.

I've got 7 clowns in my 75 gallon. When I feed them cucumber, I peel a whole one 1/2 way down lengthwise, stick a fork in the side to hold it down and then put it in the tank. They will devour the entire thing overnight. All that will be left is some skin. I don't even have to microwave it. It's their favorite treat.
