    I bought 4 Khuli loaches a couple month ago - but one is obviously not a Khuli - can't find a name for it on the web, I've searched but found nothing that looks like him. I have a picture, blurry, and was hoping someone who knows loaches could help me out with the ID. Sorry for the crappy pic, my camera leaves a lot to be desired and the little guy took off before I could try again. His key feature is apparent though, mid section bands of black and orange. Thanks for your help!
    Why do people always scream when I'm driving?

    Thank you Jaysee - I just looked up Sumo Loaches and that is definitely what he is! Thankfully his requirements are similar to the Khulies so he will be ok in my tank, but I will probably have to move him to one of the larger tanks by the end of the year. He is more massive inch for inch than the Khulies and at 4 inches he will be too much loach for the tank! Thanks again for the positive ID
