Update on the Sewellia import

So judging from just the image that HH supplied below, I'm thinking that my S. lineolata were in fact S. albisuara. If they weren't they were very close.
Anyway, I talked with the shop and the importer today, and he's got six more of these that survived - out of fifty!!! He said they were shipped in one large bag and that 12 were dead on arrival. When he complained to the exporter, he was told that they were "warm water fish" - which may or may not be true. To his credit, he's quite interested in getting the name right, and importing more if he can get the exporters to do it differently.
And on Friday or Saturday he's going to replace my pair.
