Today, I stopped at a couple of lfs to check out the "borneo suckers" for possible new species. Guess what? I found what looks like possibly sinogastromyzon puliensis, or maybe wui. If you look in the species index it looks most like the bottom pic under s. piliensis, although the markings(dark brown, over lighter olive/brown) are a bit more defined and it looks more attractive. While looking in the tank, I noticed a beaufortia type tail but with bars on it. When the girl at the store got him out where I could see him, you could see, that despite its beaufortia type roundish shape, it was definately something else. From above, you can see its head is broader and a bit more blunt. It is a very healthy, fat, fish that seems less nervous than beaufortia. My name is Jim, and I am a hillstream loach-aholic.
