I have cherries in the 180 with botia striata. I suspected they would eat them, but none yet.
The amano's are tougher, but the SAE's ate all the CRS in another tank, left these alone and amano's.
Not a good combo IMO. Unless they have plenty of thick plants to hide in and lots of good place for the loaches to hide and they are well fed.
