Erik, as far as pics on this site go, the closest I can find is Cobitis Striata. The only main difference I can see is colour. Mine's colours are bold. And the colourdon't blend. It's a VERY pale flesh colour, wuth very stark greenish-brown lines. That and the fact that the Striata pictured DOES have the "Broken Line" look on it's last stripe... but the Striata pictured looks more like BLOTCHES, not a broken line. From what I can tell, I may really have a striata, as I noticed the Broken Line change to blotches at feeding time.

Odd, beautiful loach. Anyone consider this a rare find?
