L. disparis in Practical Fishkeeper Mag...

I was checking out the Feb. issue of PFK mag and saw Liniparhomaloptera disparis in the New Imports section. Most of the info was correct and the pic was a good one. The text included info on the fishes hillstream habitat and that it had been bred in captivity(no kidding;) It also mentioned that it was primarily a by catch with other balitorids from China. It didn't mention the white cheeked goby connection. One thing I thought was odd was the reference to this fish as "sedentary". In my experience, they are anything BUT sedentary. Now if I could just find them again...
