    Finally got my dream loach!!!

    I went to a large pet store while at the beach and asked if they carried hillstream loaches and was told no. While browsing the store guess what I run across, my dream fish that I have been after for two years Sewellia Lineolata, mislabeled as pleco (sp)...LOL...Anywho after showing off my considerable knowledge and pointing out to the store mgr that they were mislabeled I am now the proud owner of two these little guys. They are not real fond of the camera right now so this is about as good a pic as I can get.

    I just would have thought better of this place. Just goes to show no matter how delicious the stock that still doesn't mean the people know what they are talking about...LOL

    same goes for people, no matter what they have in their tanks still doesn't mean they know what they're talking about

    but to be fair there are so many different fish out there. while its not a rare fish many stores dont commonly get them.

    Nice find. It's similar around here. They arn't rare, but nobody knows about them if you ask for a "Hillstream Loach". Asking for a "Butterfly Pleco" gets much better results (which is stranger, considering the common name is already taken by an actual pleco).

    Beautiful fish! I'll be getting some this summer. My LFS says they can get them for me. They pop up on aquabid with some frequency otherwise.
    They'll be in a tank set up specifically for them, so I hope to get breeding, which I've read isn't difficult. I'll just have some herbivorous gobies in as tankmates.

    The tank these guys are in was originally set up for them, then when I couldn't find them anywhere I put about 20 or so white clouds in and now the two new loaches
