Another hillstream mis-ID

I was looking at the "Interesting Imports" section of the Dec. issue of Tropical Fish Hobbyist today and saw what looked like a beaufortia. The caption said "Gastromyzon punctalatus". The text talked about the fishes habitat(ie moving water with temps beow 78F) but stated that it would make a good fish for a community tank with species from the same region. Fishes such as rasboras, danios, and gouramis. Well, I would agree with the first two, but I can't imagine a gourami and a gastro being comfortable in the same conditions. Another case of poor info and mis-ID of a hillstream :(
