Wow.. couldn't say what those are. How big? They are kinda similar to the zebra loaches I have in some ways but most certainly also different.

I got them as Burmese Tiger Botia. Right now they're about 3". I tried to put them into my 25g and they whiped out a small white calvus in one day so now they're in the 75g.

well actually given what they did to your calvus that my be correct and it has the same nose. Are those bars green? if it doesn't develop red on it's tail eventually you may have a Chameleon loach (Syncrossus beauforti).

They're actually like a gold/black/silver. Def diff than the chameleon's. I am thinkin they are Syncrossus hymenophysa. Shootin a new vid this week so I'll have to get some good close ups and link it on here.

I know they prefer a lower PH so we're gonna see what happens with them in the African tank. Our LFS has had success with them in high PH sand tanks so I'm hoping they'll adapt to my water also.

To be continued
