Some confusion regarding loaches

Hello, pretty new to all this but getting the hang of it.

One thing I'm having trouble with though is loaches.

Some just look like big fish and then there's others that look more like worms or eels. The eel/worms are the ones I'm interested in but I'm having trouble finding out which loach is which.

Does anyone know of list of loaches with pictures, or is just one kind of species?

Thanks in advance.

Kuhlii loach comes to mind but there are several other choices. Here are some links to loach identification and to the serpentine type specifically:
http://www.loaches.com/
http://www.loaches.com/species-index...entine-loaches
I would have copied and pasted the info directly here but there is a lot of information present; worth a look.
