New SAEs... I think

So I've wanted to get a couple SAEs for my planted tank for a while now, but have had the hardest time finding them. Well, I stumbled accross these yesterday, and think that they are true SAEs. THe LFS had them labeled as flying fox's, which is common, so I was hoping for confirmation on what I had.

Here's some pics.

color and markings look right. Clear fins, black stripe from nose to tail. Do they have the little barbels on their nose?

Looks kinda like catfish whiskers, but very short? They have those, if that's what you're referring to

those look just like my SAEs when I got them. They are now big and fat, they grow very quickly!
