I've been reading!

Hemigrammus rhodostmus is the one I like, I like the tail.
It is a rummy nose!
A lovely colourful fish, I probably won't get any at all but they are very nice!

That might be it! They also had sewellia lineolata. I will phone tomorrow and find out. They had two choices the sewellia were really expensive, these were the cheaper option.

These fish have loads of species! More than I realised when I got back home with them.

Correct, there are some 40 or 50 hill stream loaches, I like to know what exactly I have. OCD possibly? I think they mainly all fall under gastromyzon but include pseudogastromyzon and sewellia. According to pip (the name rings a bell) there are even more!

I only thought there were a few, nowhere near all those listed.
I've just learned all that garb!
More amazing knowledge, constantly fascinating world of fish.
The internet actually has some uses for fish species!

Some of them are real nice!

I knew sewellia and gastromyzon but not the numbers involved.

Thanks for the link, tank(s) sourced, collection tomorrow. The linked build will be happening this weekend. I got a great deal on three tanks, joy!

Rheophile/Laminar flow Rig, DIY (loaches.com)

All for under 50, based on water feature for a pond, rated at 770 litres per hour. Massive thanks to the not so local fish store who spent some part of this afternoon test fitting different bits and bobs and opening all kinds of boxes. They even "donated" a few bits to my cause, namely the black strainers (not sure what they are) and a silly bit of hose.

No glue required! Easily upgraded. Some modifications were necessary.
