I recently purchased 2 Pakistani loaches from one lfs and 2 Yo Yo loaches from another. Thinking I was getting 4 b. almorhae, now I'm not so sure. The two smaller fish, sold to me as Pakistani loaches, have much darker banding. The banding goes all the way around the fish. They also seem deeper bodied. They're about 1.5 in. The two larger fish, sold as Yo Yos, are about 3 in. The banding is lighter and stops at the belly. Are there color variations in b. almorhae or do I have two different species? Thanks
