A new admiration for Horse-faced loaches

I recently acquired a pair of quite healthy horsies, and I've been stalking the Q-tank ever since. They have an uncanny awareness of whether you intend to photograph them or not, and they are somewhat camera shy. ZIP! They simply vanish into the sand. Their speed is astonishing, and it's a far more sensible defense mechanism than suborbital spines, IMO.
Many attempts - no pictures yet.
