Botia modesta

Okay I am am looking for some advice (I am always looking for advice it seems) on Botia modesta. I have a tank with Yo-yo's, Dojo's, Clowns and a newly purchased Horse-face loach. Any suggestions on mixing this species with the others. I have read they can be rather aggressive.
Shari you were right on about my mystery fish being Botia modesta (at least I am pretty sure that is what they are).
I have been fighting the compulsion to get them. They are in a tank that is not marked and I just know most likey noone else is going to get them or even know what they are. i keep going in and looking at them and debating getting them. I think I partly just feel bad about them just sitting there in a mostly barren tank.
Thanks for the help.
BTW there are only two of them in the store so I am not sure if I would be able to make a bigger school of them any time soon. This is the only time I have seen them around my area,
