New hillstream...

In my usual search for "contaminant" loaches, I came accross an interesting hillstream in with "lizard catfish"(green hillstream or Homaloptera sp.) It is built just like the H. orthogonatia or saddleback loach, but is marked more like the green hillstream. This one is brick red with brown blotches. After looking at the species index, it appears to be H. stephensoni. It looks just like the photo in the index except for the beautiful brick red color. Of course I had to buy it for my river tank. Maybe it will hang out with my one lonely saddleback.
