Name That Loach

Date: Wednesday, 23 March 2005, at 8:33 p.m.

I ran across a loach today at a LFS (Pet Super Market). They were calling it a black fin shark. They were also calling the modesta loach a red tail shark. I am 99.9% sure that the "Red Fin Shark was a Modesta because I have Modesta and they are identical. This new loach I seen today was quite stunning. It looked excatly like the Modesta except where the modesta has the red fins, this one had white and black fins. I bought 5 of them because I could not resist. If anyone could tell me, or point me toward what breed of loach this is I would greatly appreciate it. I will try to get a picture to attach to this at a later time.
