Unfortunately, they do not seem to have much available, as far as hillstreams, right now. But you should keep checking these sites. I have heard good things about them.
The first species that I had spawn was Psuedogastromyzon cheni, followed by Liniparhomaloptera disparis. Both were kept in the same tank and spawned at the same time. The substrate was the standard size aquarium gravel. Since then, I have also had Sewellia lineolata spawn.
At this time, I don't have any extra babies. The chenis and disparis are all gone, and I only have one tank spawned Sewellia.
My Sewellia breeders are in a tank with danios, chelas, white clouds and lots of shrimp, so I don't get many surviving eggs. I do have one small one now that is about .5 in. (1cm) long, but I want to keep him.
Its too bad you weren't interested a few years ago. When I had the chenis and disparis, I was over run with babies!
Also, I just remembered there is someone out of Columbus, Ohio who sells some fish online. He tends to have tank bred Sewellia linoelata, but unfortunately, I don't recall his web address. I do think he sometimes sells them on Aquabid, so you might want to check there.

They also have sewellia lineolata & borneo suckers-a mixed bag of gastromyzon sp. You can contact them directly at.. firstname.lastname@example.org for a list. I've had good luck buying form them.
Don't know much about it, but they have a few hillstream loaches on their list. Unfortunately, they don't have many available right now. That seems to be the case with most of the online fish sites. But I would keep checking. I have checked this site from time to time, and hadn't in awhile. Wouldn't you know it that sometime between the last time I checked it and now, they got Liniparhomaloptera disparis and are now out. I have not seen those around in years and would love to get some and breed them again. My last one died a few months ago.
They do have Gastromyzon ctenocephalus, now, though.

I'm posting to warn that the other two climbed out of the tank and dessicated so you may need to ensure they cannot do this.
All the best.
