my Botia Lucas bahi - rare? *PIC*

4 of the loaches I bought Sunday (Houston LFS) that I thought were Botia Helodes are actually B. Lucas Bahi, per the picture at this website. The markings are identical, down to the red-tipped dorsal fin. They are very fun, and FAST. They don't mind going to the surface for flake food, or rooting in the sand for leftovers. How can you not like them? They and my YoYo's get along marvelously so far.

Is this species rare in aquariums?
