Nemacheilus lactogeneus ?

Hi all,

A couple of months ago I imported some loaches from my Indonesian supplier, who is based in Jakarta. They were a new addition to their standard fish-list and were named as Nemacheilus lactogeneus. I cannot find any photographs to compare them to - the one on fishbase is terrible of an old black & white preserved specimen. Although the photos I have taken are ok, they probably don't quite do the fish justice as they have a lovely sheen on them, green at certain angles, pink at others.
