Was it a loach I saw at Petsmart?

I was in a hurry, so didn't get a chance to look closely, but I noticed a yellow what looked like an eel or loach. Actually, it looked most like a kuhli loach to me, but I am not familiar with eels, so who knows? I didn't look at the name on the tank, but it's head was up a bit and it was looking around, not acting shy at all, and I know kuhli loaches tend to hide a lot, and I also have not seen them raise their heads as this one did. It was about 3 inches long, and about as big around as a pencil, and bright yellow. I wish now that I had looked at the name to see what it was. Any ideas? I can't find a pic online that looks just like it, as the pics I saw of Dojo loaches had whiskers, and this one did not. I really liked it, it appeared calm and not skittish. Would it work in a community 55 gallon tank with various fish? Also, can you give me a guess as to what it was? Thanks!

Try looking up a albino bichir and tell me if that's it or look up albino rope fish

If it had a whole bunch of dorsal finlets then it was a Senegal bichir.

Thank all of you for helping out! Mudfrog, I went to the link, and sure enough, it's a Dojo Loach. Petsmart is having a sale now, so I want to get 3 of them for my 55. I just hope they aren't all gone yet. The sale is today through the 16th. Thanks again--they sound like real clowns!
