New purchases

Howdy folks,

Today I bought 4 "banded mountain loaches" which are some kind of nemachelus/shistura species that I haven't identified yet. 3 are of one species and have a kind of reticulated pattern similar to acanthacobitis (sp?) botia and are about 4cm long. The other 1 is striped similar to a kuhli and has the same orangeish coloration and is also about 4cm.

I was hoping to get more of the striped orange "odd-balls" which I saw first a fortnight ago at the LFS but now they're on their third batch and this time there was only a single orange colored loach amongst the reticulated ones. They're good sellers though so if I go back every week I'm pretty sure of getting anohter couple of the orange ones.

Anyway, better go, its Saturday night and I've got visitors! See y'all monday.
