What is the weather loachs' home environment?

Does anyone know what sort of environment weather loaches come from originally? I know that the water level probably changes quite a lot, since they're equipped to hibernate when they run out of water, or crawl cross-country, but past that I don't know. Are they river fish? Do they appreciate high flow rates?

Thanks,

Colman
