Clown Loach?

Maybe somebody out there can clarify something for me. I live in Central Florida. Several shops around town are selling what they have labeled as clown loaches. Specimins are usually ~1.5" - 2" range. They look exactly like a clown loach but are White with Black stripes instead of Orange with Black stripes. Most people I have spoken with on the net feel that this is not a true clown (botia macracantha), but possibly a different species. Anybody else seen a blk/wht clown?

Thanks.
