Hora's Loach

I recently obtained two, about 1 3/4 to 2". One has two or three vertical stripes just in front of the caudal fin. I've never seen these in pictures. I s this common? Otherwise the fish acts as described in books.

The other one is all over the tank, all of the time. It seems to bother the other fish by comming up from behind an nipping or just touchine the other fish, and then continuing on it's way. I find it particularly likes to pester the catfish that way.

Is this a normal behavior ? TIA
