The Loach Forum Archives (3)

Name-game anyone?

Picked up a "banded loach" today. Just got one, for now, till I can learn more about it and am just now starting an attempt to ID it.

A couple of sites equate banded loach with nemacheilus fasciatus but I can't find a pic. To me, it looks a little bit like my schistura kohchangensis loaches but "larger boned" or heavier and with larger pectoral, pelvic, and caudal fins. It's about 3" TL with kind of indistinct rather than sharply defined bands. The LFS guy didn't know anything about them...no sci name either. I'm working on setting up a river type tank...don't know if it would be a good candidate for that kind of environment or not?

And ideas anyone? I'd like to get more, before they are all gone, if they are sociable etc.
