B. kubotai in Vancouver

Hiya gang... Thought I should mention to my Vancouver cronies that Aquariums West has in a small number of B. kubotai (very small size, too), as well as a new batch of yoyos, and something they're calling "Red-tailed loach," which certainly is a loach... But what is it really? Not Schistura, with quite a long body and tall dorsal fin. No striking redness to the tail... Might be Acanthocobitis species, but I've never kept those guys, so I can't say for sure. Anyway, these ones are biggish, like over three inches, I would say - $24.95? - I think that's right.
So now I am the proud owner of one perky little B. kubotai... Pretty fish!
Mark.
