Vietnamese Loaches *PIC*

Vietnam is opening up to fish exports so we should be getting exposed to many new loach species. Here's a pic of what's being exported as a Red Tail Fasciatus. Unfortunately the exporters aren't fish experts so if it isn't in the Axelrod Atlas, they don't know what to call it. The fish on the left is what we're supposed to be getting but a quick look at a bag found a couple of other species. I'm assuming the colors and patterns are a bit washed out because these are fresh in so I expect them to look different once they have settled down. Anyone recognize any of these?

And yes, Martin, I'm working on getting Hillstreams from there.
