Zipper Loach

Last night, I purchased a Zipper Loach (Acanthocobitis botis) and was wondering is anyone could share some info. I've websearched for them and found that they grow to about 4" and are peaceful. Is this correct? I'm also confused about whether they prefer to be solitary or in groups. I've found references to both. If they do like small groups, I plan on buying 2 to 3 more but need to do it quickly, the store where I found them doesn't normally carry them.

Thank you,
