Dwarf Loach

I keep a tank of corydoras and rams (odd community?). I have a few types of corydoras: Panda, sterbai, albinos, sterbai albinos (orange strip fin), skunk, hoplo and dwarf corydoras.

Recently, i went pass an aquarium and went in to take a look. They were so small in a huge school of neon tetras that I could have just missed them. but i was lucky to spot these small slender silvery fishes with tiny black spots. They reminded me of dwarf cory but unlike the usual round figure of the cory, these were very slender and long.

The shop keeper told me they were called "Thai Botia Rumminmunki" or something like that. I bought a pair seeing that if they got along with neons they should be ok with corys. A few days later, I went for 2 more and I think I will get a lot more because they are not common in the shops in Sin
