Hikari Loach?

I just saw some interesting loaches at a pet store in Claremont, NH they called "Hikari Loaches." They look like Botias, but I've never seen any coloring like this. I had the thought they were injected, but it's way too complicated a pattern to do with dye, I think. They were bright pink on the entire rear half, had a dark stripe down the center from their back to their belly, and the front half was cream. Anybody got an idea what these guys are really called or even if they're a real species?
