Newbie Loach(?) I.D.

I bought this fish recently and have been trying to identify what it is. Actually I don't even know if it is a loach. I have been surfing the net for two days and found no pictures of this creature so I would be grateful to obtain wisdom from others out there. Here is the description:

1. The head looks like a Louisiana catfish with the whiskers and everything; 2. No dorsal fin; 3. Reddish pink in color with little brown spots with a light brown vertical stripe at the tail near the fin; 4. Another stripe at the outer edge of the fin, which is round; 5. Body is cylindrical like an eel but shorter.

Thanks in advance! Ray.
