Picked up 4 clown loaches tonight, all 5"-6" -- the guy was moving and wasn't taking them with. He also had 2 other loach type fish that he asked me to take, I have no clue what they are, can anyone ID these please?

Sorry no one has responded. Things are a bit slow lately on this forum.
Did you check out the species index?
Try this pictorial search if you haven't already.

Yea I tried that :( I wasn't able to find anything that looked like an exact match, or that even had the little black spot. It sure looks like a loach, but maybe its not? Thanks for your help.

I would say its definitely a loach. My guess would be Y. modesta but the spot is puzzling. Maybe its just a random marking.
I am hoping someone will come along and confirm that.
