Loach identity

I bought a new fish today.. The girl working at the LFS knew it was a loach but that was about it (knowledgable goes home at noon there). Anyway , I bought this guy for 4.99$ , I'm thinking dojo loach , but I'm no expert with loaches yet. So if anybody knows I'd appreciate it

Definitely not a dojo, those have much rounder faces/noses, longer bodies, and rounded/non-forked tails. Tiger Botia could be right.

Tiger botia for sure
Not entirely colored yet so sorta tricky but still has the same face construction and pattern on body.
