Seek info on & where to find Botia Pulchras

Dear loach lovers,

I have one Botia Pulchra, which is about 3 inch broad-stripped (brown/light yellow) fish. It is a bit of a terrorist with my goldfish, but I have tamed him to eat out of my hand, and he is a real delight, my "Tiger Boy". As it's getting colder, I need to know the optimum temperature for this fish, as he appears to be cold at 21 C, and I can't find this info anywhere. I would also love to buy some more of this type, but the store where I got him said, "no more", because people complained about the agressiveness of the species. Please respond if you have any info. I will try to post a picture in a subsequent email.
