Any own a Nemacheilus pallidus?

Hi-

I mentioned somewhere here I bought 3 mystery loaches at a LFS 2 Fridays ago. I thought they were related to Zippers, but I confirmed their identity as Nemacheilus pallidus.
I haven't seen many articles or information about these guys, but I seem to be raising them right. They're happy, hungry, friendly, and one of the most entertaining loaches I've seen.
Does anyone here own (or has owned) some of these guys, or have info about them?
I sent some info I gathered by observing these loaches to Loaches.com, but I haven't heard from anyone, and it was a good week ago.

Thanks.
