Hi everyone,

This message was posted a few months ago, but didn't get any responses. However, the author has sent me a picture of these fish, so I thought I'd repost the thread. He has 7 of them, and the largest is about 3" or 75mm in length. Any comments are appreciated; it's certainly an unusual shape for a clown loach!

Thanks!

Jeff
