New loach species

Just noted Mesonemacheilus guentheri listed as a new species on the Home page of LOL - surprising as I just picked up four of them from my lfs (in Henlow, Bedfordshire, for the Brits). Inevitably they were misnamed as Schistura. However, though only a couple of inches long they are quite the boldest loach I have ever owned, snatching food away from large catfish and 5 inch clowns, and squabbling with each other. Highly recommended, though it's a shame they are so small, as the colours and shape look interesting.
