Micronemacheilus pulcher

One of my local fish stores got in a mixed bag of loaches from parts unknown. Among the Schisturas were a few loaches that look VERY similar to the Micronemacheilus pulcher that are pictured in the Loach Species Index. They have the reddish dorsal fin which is triangular and very prominent and the emerald green stripe on the side. Are there any other loaches that this one is easily confused with? Have any of you kept this loach??
