Weird gastro found locally...

Well, I knew this would happen. I find gastros on a trip to Mass. and haul them 1000 miles home. After I am back for a few weeks, they appear at my lfs. Usually, if they get anything weird in the owner calls me. They have recently moved to a new building and she had lost my phone number. I went in today and she hustled me over to the "borneo sucker" tank. In it was a nice gastromyzon punctalatus and a wierd gastro sp. that I have never seen before. It is marked like G. ridens in the pics that Mia posted, but has a very broad flat snout and no markings on the dorsal or tail. Its about 2inches long and quite interesting looking. I hope to get some pics of it soon
