Kuhli loach or something else?

I have what the store called a kuhli loach, and I would like to get him some company since I've read that they do better in groups. I am wondering if he isn't another species of loach, though. Instead of being striped, he's dark brown. Does anyone know if this is a completely different species, or just a different variety of color? Since I want to have more loaches to make him feel more comfortable (and maybe not hide quite so much), should I try to get more of the brown loaches in order to be sure they are the same species, or would he feel just as comfortable with the striped loaches? Thanks for any advice!
