New Loach species???....

Hi. Last night I picked up 4 "Julianensis Botias," but they don't look anything like the Botia genus. They have a light brown body, with black beautiful bands, as well as a tail that is light red and with an interesting pattern. The body and head look very similar to a Schistura type or Barbatula type fish. Anyone know what they are? Thanks!
