So far I have only seen two pictures/references for Acantopsis...the horse or moose faced loach. I bought a pair of what have to be a third variety. They are similar in shape and size but the colors are much more distinct. Their bellies are snow white and the second/contrasting/patterning color is deep brown/black. The translucence of the other two varieties is not evident...mine are opaque. I will be taking pictures as soon as possible and need to know who/where to send/post them.

Any ideas, references ???
