Thank you both for your information. I tried to look them up in the species listing but don't know the name so don't really know where to start.
It isn't the b nigrolineata. I saw the picture and looked at the article.

My loaches are about the size of the twistem off a loaf of bread. It looks more like a kuhli loach but much thinner. It is not fat at all. It is about the length of a kuhli loach. Long body with a racing stripe from nose to end of tail.

It shines like the silver part of a neon. Reflects the least amount of light even with tank lights and room lights off will reflect the tv light. Very slender and at least 4" long.

Thank you.
