Clown loaches with four black stripes instead of three? There is a Petsmart near my mother's house that always has big healthy fat clowns, most with unusual markings,(saddles, spots,etc.). I was lookingg at their new shipment and all of them had four black stripes...which didn't even strike me as odd until I follwed the link on a prev. message, (just to see what it said), and noticed that all the drawings had three black bands. On these the third line started at the back of the dorsal fin, then came a yellow band, then a black band again just before the tail...I even went to check the pic of my new fish just to re-count.
