wow, 4.4 metres. i knew barbel were fast but wow, not that fast.lol
after watching them i did decide to get my net out and have alook at them from the side and see if i could identify them(serious loach keeper here ).
i did manage to catch one after ages of trying, i'm stumped, such beautiful markings, no loach i've ever seen. green body, blue stripes, similar shape to pseudogastromyzon fangi.
i tried to count the amount of rays but it was getting a bit dark and put him back straight away.
also has a yellow gillplate. and at the start of there percoral fin is a white dot.
