I'm going to have to research that point a bit further, about loaches and long-fin fish. It was raised in some authoritative sites I used when compiling the profiles, but my experience is the same as Lisa's, at least with Botia kubotai.
This is one of the difficulties in writing fish profiles. You want to be accurate, and sometimes fish of a certain species may
exhibit traits that are abnormal. Do you mention the abnormality and risk scaring everyone away from what is probably a perfect fish for that environment? Or not mention it, and then someone posts a problem with this or that fish nipping fins when the profile doesn't say it will. Can't win.
