these don't look like loners to me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8D-8BodW-8g On a side note. I found this video of taiwan.. If you want to see Crossostoma lacustre and a whole bunch of hillstreams in their natural habitat, check it out. It's at 6:00 into the video. http://www.veoh.com/videos/v70284...

rain water is a good and cheap alternative to RO water.
Get a barrel to store the rain.

you'll have to find out the real problem that started this. How big is your tank? Do you have too many fish? Is your filter adequate? etc...

Mine does it sometimes too. I have a suspicion that it might be stirred up detritus that might cause them to flash. They settle down when the water settles ... Just a guess.
