Are u sure it's a golden loach?
It's more likely to be a Chinese algae eater which can be quite aggressive with other species.
To answer your question clown loaches can go in most aquariums, they are very versatile, but are susceptible if water conditions are not ideal.
You mentioned your tank is new, in which case, if you haven't been running your tank for at least 1 month, your filter wouldn't be fully cycled. So don't add any other fish until then.

I was told it was a golden loach but now you say that I'm thinking it's an algae eater as I have seen it on the glass like the bristlenose does. I will try and attach a picture.

I'd be happy to take the knife fish off your hands for a decent price if you like?
