Loach ID help

I bought this guy a while back (it was a contaminant in a shipment of homalopteras) and am still not quite sure what type of loach it is:

I've searched the species index here and came up empty handed. I also wish I could get a better picture of its caudal fin. The red extends the length of the top 2 or 3 rays and is barely visible on the bottom 2 rays of the caudal fin. The rest of the fin is clear.

I've seen pics of nemacheilus kessleri and it looks very close to the pic above.

Any takers?

PS. Regardless of what it is, it was a steal at $1.79.
