Batik Loach? Mike O? Anyone?

I was in my lfs today for supplies and they had a single healthy looking loach with a marvelous pattern. They called it a Printed Loach, which I later found out is in the LOL species index as Batik Loach, with a short writeup by Mike Ophir.

Mike - you said in your writeup that they like to live singly. Does that mean there will be trouble with other fish? Have you ever kept one? This guy was gorgeous! I couldn't keep him now because of his high temperature requirements, but I have a 20G coming shortly and I would sure like to know more about this beautiful loach!
