My favorite LFS just got a tank full of these guys. They look absolutely incredible and I have to admit, are one of the neatest looking fish I have ever seen (next to freshwater rays).

I can't seem to find much info on keeping these guys, I was hoping someone could provide some insight.

Specific questions:
How long do they live
What are their prefered water conditions
Are they compatible with other loaches (Clowns)
How large can they grow

Thanks for the help, feel free to smack me for asking too many questions :-)
