Khulis or black khulis?

I'm going to be ordering some fish soon, and was considering getting either khulis or black khulis...Since they'll be ordered online, sight-unseen, I'm not sure exactly which species of loach they'll be.
So, I've got a few Q's about them in general that will help me make the decision about which to order...
1. Which tends to get larger on average?
2. Which is more active?
3. Is there a difference in temperature tolerance between the 2? The tank in question is currently kept at ~ 78f.
4. Is one of them more suited to gravel rather than sand? (tank has a substrate of fine rounded gravel)
5. My Ph is around 7.6..will this work for either loach?
6. Numbers
