Yasuhikotakia modesta is pretty frequently dyed. If you look them up in the species index on Loaches .com (I'd link, but there's a forum there and I don't want to get the whole post deleted over that), you'll find down near the bottom pictures of dyed forms that easily could be called blueberry and strawberry. They get 7-10" long and are pretty darn aggressive, particularly if they don't have enough conspecifics to tussle with.

That is indeed a Weather Loach, Misgurnis anguillicaudatus. I know they are not a tropical species, but I got 2 of them, 3 B. striata, a B. almorhae, a B. kubotai, and the Nemacheilus with a 20 gallon tank, which was silliness and lead to me purchasing the 50 gallon in the picture to house them. Tropical or No, the Weather Loaches have been thriving well enough that I got 2 golden weather loaches to keep them company. (And I know how things work well enough that I got 4 more each of the B. almorhae and B. kubotai, moved the almorhae to a 75, and put the 3 striata I got with the 5 striata I had in the 75 too. Probably ought to get a couple more Neamcheilus, but I really don't have the space in the 50, and he is a character all by his lonesome.)
