I am in the process of writing a book about loaches and need some decent pictures of the following species:

12-banded loach (Sinibotia ulchra, Botia uperciliaris, Botia gigantea, Botia pulchra)
Beaufort’s loach (Syncrossus beauforti)
Blue botia (Yasuhikotakia modesta)
Burmese loach (Botia histrionica)
Clown loach (Chromobotia macracanthus)
Dojo/Weather loach (Misgurnus anguillicaudatus)
Dwarf loach (Ambastaia sidthimunki)
Hillstream loach (Beaufortia kweichowensis)
Horse-faced loach (Acantopsis choirorhynchus)
Kuhli loach (Pangio kuhlii)
Marble loach (Botia kubotai)
Red-tailed loach (Noemacheilus elongatus)
Skunk loach (Yasuhikotakia morleti)
Spiney-headed hillstream loach (Gastromyzon ocellatus)
Sucking loach/Chinese algae eater (Gyrinocheilus aymonieri) (Yes, I know that this species is not a true loach!)
Tibet royal loach (Triplophysa siluroides)
Tiger loach (Syncrossus hymenophysa)
Yoyo loach (Botia almorhae, Botia lohachat)
Zebra loach (Botia striata)

I am doing this for a 3rd party, but feel free to contact me (PM) with what you have; what the size of the pic is; the resolution; and what you want for the picture(s). You must be able to guarantee that the pics are your own and that you own the copyright for them. Watermarks in any sample pics must be able to be removed (by you). They don't have to be large pictures but preferably they should be of decent resolution and in the 300 DPI or better range. I usually hang out on MFK, instead of AC, but feel free to PM me on either site.

Thanks in advance!
