Botia histrionica info

Well i went shopping today and found some 1 1/2" Botia histrionica, nice healthy fish, and got 3. The pictures of larger specimens show a loach with really nice bold markings for a non-clown loach, so i had to get some. I haven't recalled seeing them before. I might wanna go get some more, but i must move some fish out of that tank anyway.

Some questions then... they seem more active/less shy than Darios or Striatas on first impression, but has anybody kept them, any experiences?
How big have you seen them get?
Do they get yellower when they get bigger?
Where are they from approx...(India area, Thailand area, Indonesian islands?)
