Weather Loach or not?

The Loach I bought today is approx. three inches long, pure white (no trace of any other color), he has dark brown(almost black) eyes, with a narrow red ring around outside of eyes. The shopkeepers son says it is NOT a weather loach. His dad swears it is, although baffled by the absence of typical markings. His tailfin is split and has 3 sets of barbels around his mouth. He is currently playing around with my botia dario, botia lohachata, and a couple of kuhlis under a rock. Is he......or is he not a weather loach? The pictures I have seen online show them being shorter and fatter and this guy is 3 inches long and very slender. Any ideas? I bought him anyway cuz' he's cool looking.
