Species of my loaches?

Can someone ID my loaches? Please.

I'm "quite shure" both of these are Gastromyzon but which...? First is quite certainly G. punctulatus but what's second....? G. ridens would be possibility but I don't think so. It looks like ridens in loaches.com pictures, but it's not shy nor 10cm long, it's smaller. That second loach of mine can change it's color like chameleon. On sand it's yellow like in picture and on rock or leaf or wood it's much darker. It has little bluish in tail in right lighting. Any ideas. Thank you.

And pics in my photobucket:
