Botia personalities- my experiences- any rec'd?

I have always liked the clown loaches. Most everyone is familiar with there behaviors in groups and alone. I have kept other botia and some I liked and others I did not. I like the Yo-yo loaches. They are more curious and more solitary than clowns. I will definitely put them in my new tank. I had a lone skunk loaches that was just plain mean. He always chased my clowns and made very loud clicking noises. Interesting, but he went back to the store. The green tiger botia were curious to the point of being annoying to most all other fish in the tank. I probably won't get them. The orange finned loaches were to lax. They didn't do much other than hang out. Kind of boring. Does anyone have a recommnedation on loaches with personalities similiar to clowns/ yo-yo's? There are many I have never kept. TIA
