What is this loach?
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 IDWhy do people always scream when I'm driving?
