histronica fin nipping?

My 3 histronicas love to harrass my red rainbow fish (Glossolepis incisus) once in a while... They seem to do it for fun but now i've noticed the rainbows dorsal fins are a bit chewed and tattered. The rainbow is 5 times bigger than these botias. And the rainbow would chase the histronica when it ge...

hmm. I think I got ripped off...
It was advertised as a borneo sucker... But it looks just like a regular chinese Hillstream (Beaufortica).

I'm in cincinnati. It's the only place that i've seen a Hillstream... if i was to order one, it would cost the same (price, S&H)..
Oh well..

I just bought a Gastromyzon/ Borneo sucker

I bought one for $13... Did i get ripped off?... I would buy more but it's pricey for such a little thing and wanted you see how it likes my tank first before buying more...

and is it really from borneo? I'm thinking china.

I'm just afraid it'll die while burried and foul up the tank. they are fun to watch but I don't know too much about them except reading the...
