Golden Kuhli?

I recently got two new loaches at a local fish auction (I tried to get all four, but was outbid for the other bag of two). They were labeled as golden kuhli loaches, but I could not track down the seller to ask about them. They appear like kuhli loaches, but are the light tan that makes up the lighter part of the kuhlis with no dark stripes. They are also a fir amount smaller than my kuhlis, but this could be an age thing as I think the new ones are rather young. The tag also said sometimes known as Jungle loaches or something (the ink was smeared on this part so this is a bit of a guess).

Can anyone tell me about these very cool loaches, do they havwe any special requirements? Currently they have a small tank all to themselves for quarantine purposes, but they will be moving in a few weeks and I would like to know
