Info on cobitis species?

My tank is full ... but visited LFS and fell in love with some loaches being sold without any identification.

As yet haven't been able to identify - on the species index, Cobitis granoei looks the closest.

One has grown faster and altho' they have very cute faces, the larger one is becoming a bit of a bully but not really upsetting the other fish. He just likes chasing things.

They're about 2.5" long - occasionally part bury themselves in the gravel. Love their food.

Does anybody have experiences/information to share on these?

I will try & get a photo so perhaps sbdy can help me identify.
