im pretty sure this is a form of loach, looks fantastic but would like to find out exactly what it is before i intro it to my Q tank and other fish, the fish store i got it at is not sure what they are as they was brought in from a guy who just wanted rid of his entire stock of fish and tank, so i got them for £1.50p lol defo look like a loach to me

Indeed Schistura savona.

Give them plenty plants to hide in! Natural for them.
