Fighting Botia Rostratas

I have had only one botia rostrata in my tank for the past three months. I intially bought three, because I had never seen them before, but two of them died, despite my dedicated nursing. The LFS didn't have any for awhile, because the "batch" that I had bought from all died, and they were attributing it to the cold weather. Two days ago I bought two more rostratas, and one of the new ones is constantly fighting with the original. Will this continue? Should I worry? The species index said that they were very peaceful. They are-toward other fish.
