Horse Face Loaches

I am a confirmed Loach lover and have been very successful with a number of different Loach varieties, including Clowns, Zebras, Yoyos,Dojos, a Queen and kullies but I can't seem to keep Horse Face Loaches alive for more than 2 or 3 days. I have tried them twice (from 2 different LFSs)and they didn't make it. I then noticed that the others in the shop died also.

Our water is very hard and ph is aprox, 7.6 to 7.8. Could it be that they are wild caught and will not eat in captivity ?

Any help would be deeply appreciated.
