I am trying to ID my hillstream loach. His colour changes rather drastically according to what he is resting on. I have two pictures- one is on a white shell so he is very pale http://www.aquariae.ca/Aquatics/pale.jpg
and the second one is on a doark rock where he is a med brown http://www.aquariae.ca/Aquatics/two.jpg
He can alos become a deep chocolate brown and his spots will disappear.
I believe he is a gastromyzon sp. (ridens or punctulatus is what I thought he best resembles but I havent found a pic of cheni yet).I am having trouble figuring it out as he has both a mottling on his back but also has a pat
