Catching my eye..still there

My lfs has this monstrous sized loach, big as a cichlid..it is a beautiful shade of blue with firey colored fins. It is a tank star for sure.
Is it a modesta? How big do they top out at?
I'd venture to guess he is about 8 inches (but fish sometimes are smaller than water makes them..maybe 7 inches then. I always look away becuase I don't know what it is at all, nor what tank I could put it in unless it gets along with clowns. he's pricey compared to most my fish.
I think he is marked at 20 bucks. he sure is purty though. Specially since most my specie tanks have brown fish with markings.
Whatcha think guys? I'll try a pic for ID.
He has always been with altums adn a few plecos of the same size range.
