What is this ?

Got him with a tank a couple months ago, He just now started being out and "socializing" . He loves playing in bubbles . Sorry the pics suck but he is constantly moving ....... he is about 2-3 ish inches long face is kind of similar to clown loachs I've seen and he is black and white stripped. Oh and also ive seen him eat brine shrimp
Any one know what kind of fish this is ??????

That is some kind of loach, maybe a Botia histrionica or Botia almorhae.

Looks like a yoyo loach to me, they do best in groups. How big is your tank?

It looks like a Botia kubotai or some calls it Polka Dot Loach.

It's an Angelicus Botia. I have 4 of them. Along with 2 yoyo loaches.

Thanks everyone!!! I have him in a 60 gallon tank right now. Will go to LFS today and see if they have any in stock so that he won't be lonely.
