    Question

    You have left significant information out of your post/profile:

    Your tank size is relevant here, As is the other stock in the tank. The entire rundown of parameters & filtration wouldn't hurt either.

    All of these are variables that need to be considered.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Just to add to the above, loaches are not catfish. I am not aware of any coldwater catfish that can be kept in anything smaller than a large pond.

    You would be hard pressed to find one that can be kept in an unheated tank.

    Actually,bullhead catfish and madtoms,can be kept in aquariums or ponds.They are coldwater as they come with sizes ranging from a few inches to around 20 inches max.

    The op lives in the UK. I doubt that either species are commercially available there.

    Yes they are available in the trade and bullheads along with american sunfish live in various introduced wild populations.

    Well you learn something new every day. I don't think a bullhead cat can live in 35 liters of water though
