Sex something...

I had a chance today to visit a fish wholesaler and saw a very attractive species of fish that was very similar in coloration to a clown loach but was not a loach. It looked like maybe a stretched out tiger barb or a cross between a clown loach and a tiger barb.

Like a dummy, I didn't write down the name and the only thing that I can remember is that one part of the name started with 'SEX' and I believe the other part with 'f'....like SEX******* F*********. I can't find anything at fishbase using that info in a search though...so either I got it wrong or it goes by another name.

I wanted to dig up some info as they are very attractive and active fish. Expensive though, as they were 20$ US ea (they were about 4" long)at the wholesaler so probably at least twice that price retail.
