First off...hi all...hope everyone's well. Second, while picking up some khulis I noticed some tiny little loaches that must have been caught with them. Between 1 and 2 inches long, thin,they swin much like khulis with that eely motion. General body color is gold, metallic, black lateral line with a paler, almost silvery line on either side. entire body is peppered with small dots, (especially the snout), there are several larger dotts above the lateral line,in no pattern, but below the line they appear almost regular. There is a thin black line running from its eye to its mouth. This was the best picture I could get before they disappeared under the driftood and plants. closest I can come is some type of Nemacheilus?? Any ideas??
