Loaches *grin*

I found, at the icky lfs, a couple of great finds! In their shipment of Botia Straitas were 2 contaminants: a Yoyo loach and a Schistura Mahnerti loach! They had no idea what they were; I got both for $11. For some reason Yoyos are infrequently seen in lfs around here, and I've NEVER seen any sort of Schistura locally, much less one rarely seen in the states! I just wish there were a few more of each; wish they could have some buddies. As it stands now, they'll move into my 55g and hopefully hang out with my clown loaches (assuming of course, they make it thru QT; that lfs is a mess). Once they are all settled in I should be able to get some decent pics *grin*

LOL shaddup. I'm positive ;P

Of course, I found 2 MORE unusual loaches today at another fish store LOL I'm doing some research on em, and if they are as rare as I think they are, I may pick up a few.

I need another tank LOL
