Hi..I am needing some help on identifying a loach I bought months ago. It was advertized as a 'silver' loach, but does not look like the pics here. It is very long, 2-3 inches, and very skinny. About a 1/4 as fat as a Kuhli loach. It is pale gray/silver with an almost pale blue tint. It hides in the gravel and I dont see it for weeks at a time. Just when I think its problably dead, it peeps out from under a rock. Seems to show up most when sharing the same space with a DoJo that is about 4 inches long. Never out long enough or far enough to get a picture. I have a 29 gallon tank with 2 big dojos, 1 black loach (2 more of group having died), 1 skunk botia..and danios, anglefish, etc. All community fish. Would love some information if anyone can help me. Thank you.
