Clown loaches in a group will get too big for your tank unfortunately. I can't remember if slow-growing or not, but even in a 500 litre tank I've skipped them here. Yoyo loaches are just as much fun though and I'd say mine are more manageable at 3 to 4 inches. Or some of the other smaller loaches.

With the loaches on the bottom, I'd then look at increasing the tiger barb school to spread out the bickering. Just some thoughts though.

How is you tank water chemistry going? I don't want to overload the tank though.

Yea I know clowns get big I had 3 before in my chiclid tank, my aquarium said they would be fine for a couple of years, I'm planning to go bigger anyway. I know they don't eat algae that's why I had the bristle nose in mind. I agree with the tiger barbs I will have 8 of them by the weekend
