Well, in the last week or so I've picked up two unknown schistura loaches. At least that is my best guess on family. One is over 2 inches long, and the other is around 1 1/2 inches long. The smaller one is much bolder, acting a lot like a kuhli, as I actually mistook it for one when I first saw it swimming. The larger acts like my other schistura, though oddly enough my cories are terrified of the tiny loach, and my bigger loach is terrified of the cories. And my very small krib keeps following the little loach around as if it was a worm. Good thing it is much too big for him to eat.
