More Unusual Loaches

Ok. This must be my week for coming across loaches I don't normally see in the area.
In another lfs today, I came across what I'm sure was a school of Botia Lucas bahi and what I'm pretty sure was a few Botia sp. - Myanmar. Decent sized fish; 2-3 inches long, although I'm pretty sure they have parasites (mebbe ich; no spots but the poor babies were itching). They guy was asking $20 each which seemed like an awful lot. He was also asking $20 for 2-3 inch yoyos. Thats an awful lot for yoyos, but is it a lot for the other 2? Are they as unusual as I think they are?
I'm debating whether to start a loach tank, and move my newer guys into it; the ones I saw today would make a nice addition but...at $20 a pop...eek! I wanna make sure its worth it.
