Blue Botia

Please excuse a bonehead question from a loach naif. I am currently looking for a 100g - 125g tank primarily because I want to keep an Oscar. However, I've become intrigued by the Blue Botia (Modesta?). I think they are magnificent fish, but I know absolutely nothing about them. Would it be feasible to keep one with a large Oscar? Provided it had plenty of hiding places? Maybe if it was added together with a very small Oscar from the beginning? What can you tell me about this fish? It's requirements, etc. I'm assuming it's a bottom feeder, which is what I basically want. Please educate me...
