Botia splendida

I just scanned the thread below re splendida. It seems I recall reading a post here a while back made by someone who was in the area from which splendida originate and familiar with fish collection expeditions where they were encountered. I believe the post I'm thinking of expressed a concern that the species was perhaps rare and/or localized and that intensified interest or collection/exportation of the species could lead to their extinction.

I can't find the post to which I refer and am wondering if perhaps it had been deleted or if I am maybe thinking of a different species, etc. Does this sound familiar to anyone else or does anyone remember reading a post like that?
