burmese border loaches

Hi. I just wanted to mention that I got 3 of these. they don't look like the pictures of the burmese border sand loach that's on this web site though. At the LFS they told me that these were a newly discovered species and therefor they were very expensive. They are very cool looking, they have a yellow and black checkerboard pattern. When I took them home they instantly adjusted to thier new tank. I had a snail problem and within two days they ate all the snails. They don't hide, they come right up to me, soon I think I will be able to pet them. They play constantly and they aren't aggressive to other fish at all. They are my favorite fishes now. If anyone sees those around I would highly recommend them.
