A yoyo loach, or not a yoyo loach. That is my question.

I bought a few zebra danios for my 55 gallon to test it out to see if it was almost ready yet and I saw a large yoyo loach. It was about 2.5 inches long, but it had some weird coloration. Instead of the usual silvery skin like normal yoyo's it had brownish skin. It is also more oblong than my other yoyo the same size. The stripes on it are warped so it doesn't look like a yoyo's normal pattern, yet if you saw this loach your first response would be that it was a yoyo. I thought there was a thread about loach look-alikes and that there was one for the yoyo loach. Is this what I have? It seems tobe getting along with my other yoyos.
