Hi all. I'm new here, but after browsing this site for quite some time am hoping someone here can help me. I just aquired 2 new loaches by chance, and need help identifying their species. I think they are different species, though. They were labeled "banded loach", but I don't think they are Botia hymenophysa. I need to know ASAP, if anyone can help, because I do not want to add them to my tank if they are going to be aggressive or grow overly large. Thank you!

Here is the first, smaller guy (larger on right in back of bag).
