Will they be buddies (no fighting) or am I better to get opposite sex..... Photo attached for opinions of sex.... I can't tell by the pectoral fins apparently this is the best way to sex them.... Am a bit of a newbie..so not sure... Click image for larger version

Welcome to AA. Loaches in general do better in a group. The constant chasing is just part of their behavior. I keep Berdmorei and Red Tail Botia Loaches. These fish are totally out of control, but don't seem to hurt each other, very fun to watch.
I'm not sure about determining gender. Usually dorsal fin shape lends a clue to gender, not pectoral fins. Rounded dorsal tend to be female, pointed dorsal tend to be male.
