That link goes to the last of five. I'll see if I can't capture more of the colour in the dorsal and pectoral fins, and in the tail. Also, their LONG barbels are quite reddish.
These guys are nearly 3 inches long exactly. Their front ends are kind of chunky like a Schistura, but from dorsal to tail, they are very snakey, extremely flexible loaches. Always on the prowl for food, and quite competitive with each other.
