Odd Tiger Botia?

A week ago I went to a very large fish store, and was shocked about how many loaches they had! Kuhli, horseface, clown, zipper, dojo.....

In their "agressive" section, I found some very interesting things. A VERY large yo-yo, some cichlids, and......a kuhli loach? No, it can't be. It has a tiger botia's body. It was a tiger loach with a very Kuhli-loach like pattern! The shop guys didn't know what it was, but they had 5 of them. They were about 4 inches long, and were chilling out against the tank glass. I couldn't find anything on the main site.....could I get an ID?
