botia (?) ID: please help

I have just been given somebody's tank with some inhabitants in it. These include 2 fish that have a typical botia body (at least it looks to me like that) and have some Y-markings on the top. I would be very grateful if you could help me ID them before I decide what to do with them (add them to one of my existing tanks or give them their own). I will try to describe them a bit more:
- body shaped like a Botia's - they have some unclear Y-shapes at the top that reach almost their belly. They are "drawn" in a very dark grey-brown colour and filled in with a lighter grayish colour. Body background colour is a very light grey or cream tone.
YoYo can not be read as some sites suggest for a B. Lohachata but then another site mentions their being very variable. T
