Lizard fish/loach

I just purchased four of these at 10 dollars(CAD) each. They have a beautiful texture to them that gives the look of the skin of a lizard. I spent quite awhile looking at them and they are probably Homaloptera Stephensoni. My biggest one is 6.25cm. However, they almost look exactly like H. Tweediei but FishBase says the max size for Tweediei is 4cm (max size for Stephensoni is 6.5cm).

I love how they change their colors as they try to blend in with the rocks.

Are there any other people that have any of the Homaloptera species? Also, what do you feed them?
