Presumably this is the species Rasboroides vaterifloris, which is not common in the hobby. Don't kow if any other member will have maintained it, but here is some reliable information from my biologist friend Matt Ford.

Thanks for thetip on the info. I can meet all the requirements except the PH. Mine is around 7.8 after off gassing. The fish I was looking at are wild so I'm guessing the will be delicate. I also read in Matts info, that only 10% of the fish collected make it to aquarists tanks. Quite disturbing. Not sure I wan't to help with the demise of this fish. However if nice specimens could be obtained a breeding program is a possibility And maybe pay them forward to others interested in them!!

Considering that site has them listed as endangered in their native country and threatened internationally I would hope they aren't wild caught, seems a bad idea to support poaching
