They're kinda like catfish, except they evolved from the same group of fish as goldfish, barbs, etc; they're cypriniformes.

But the smallest tank size for any loach is 10 gallons (most require at least 30), so I can see why you haven't had them.
Got a question about loaches? Ask me!
Loach count: 21
Baby fish count: 700+ (shelldwellers, gbr, angelfish)
