Loach Wizards, read my mind: Golden Dojo Loach?

Saw a few of these at my LFS, if they got the identification right. I am wondering though, I can't match the photos you have to the loaches I saw. They were shaped kind of like kuhli's but swam much more clumsily. They were the same size as my full grown kuhli's and had the same indentation along the sides that you sometimes see with kuhli's. The bodies were gold expect for a brown dot near the tail. They were pretty frantic because they were in a tank with tiger barbs, but they just looked wrong, like some specialized marine fish. I know this isn't a great description, but I think I want some and they just seem wrong. Thanks, Jayne
