Need Help With Scientific Name.

After reflecting upon Mike's words here, and looking at the social behavior of a tank full of Batik Loaches (Yikes), I decided against getting one. Thanks for the warning, Mike.
Instead, I purchased four "Sand Loaches." They look to be young Schistura savona. However, I looked on Fish Database and see that the correct (?) scientific name is "Neomacheilus savona." Comments?
Who here has had a group of these fish? I only had a single fish of this species in the past. Are they generally good citizens with each other? The young group I have in my Q tank seems to get along fine...schools together, etc.
