Are you keeping them in a tank specifically designed for their requirements? If not, I would strongly recommend it. They prefer cooler temperatures (coming from mountain and highland streams in China) and prefer TONS of flow. As K Randall suggested, I would go with a 20L (or maybe a 10 gal if that's all you have room for). Put a little sand on the bottom and decorate with a ton of smooth river rocks of various sizes (I would collect them yourself from local rivers, especially since they will already have starts of good algae on them) and put a couple powerheads on one side of the tank directly facing the opposite side and let them blast.
