What kind of fish is this?

Was out at our lfs earlier today and I spotted what looked to me to be a loach. But after starting my loach tank and doing all the research I did into them, I have never seen a loach with these markings before. Just curious cause he was a cool little guy and his tank was not marked. Thanks.

Sumo loach, also called orange saddled loach. Schistura balteata. Needs a well oxygenated fast flowing set up to thrive. Also best in small groups. Beautiful looking fish.

I believe Pip got it
Cool looking fish. I've not seen that one before. I just might need to set up a tank to try them.

I have seen these on our suppliers lists a couple of times lately but I have resisted because they need the right conditions and are not cheap!
