    This may be a silly venture but whenever I research catfish or loaches it says that they says they suck up sand and filter it through their gills searching for microscopic crustations and insect larvae. so for the question these aforementioned microscopic crustations are they "culture-able?" are they there already? are they only naturally occurring?

    That would be in nature. In an aquarium, most catfish and loaches can be fed sinking pellets with the occasional treat of frozen/live/dried worms/brine shrimp/other critters that can be purchased at a good pet store.

    Brine shrimp are relatively easy to culture, there's started kits on ebay. Since most things in your aquarium will eat these perhaps it's worth a try.
