"peppered botia loach"

Can anyone help me identify a loach? I looked on the species identification page and can't find a picture that looks like the two new loaches I got recently. They have a body similar to a weather loach, but are much smaller. they are very attractively marked with horizontal "stripes" of dark charcoal gray and light gray. I looked up peppered botia loach, but they don't really resemble the picture - they are more strikingly marked. Can anyone suggest what they may be? Thanks!
