okay, another modesta question.......(sheesh)

okay, i've become addicted to scouring tanks for odd bottom-dwellers. the most recent acquisition is a striped b. modesta. there was only one, so he is currently without family, although his orange fins and stripes caused the male ram to think he was a female ram when he was first released into the tank. hehe. i hadn't seen the striped version here before, only the solid bluish-grey ones. this one is a lovely greyish/green with an irridescent sheen and looks just like the natural ones in the lol pic. with all the controversy flying about b. modesta, am i correct in assuming that he'll follow all the modesta traits?
