 Kajsa,
 I  guess  the  fish  should  be  around  2".   Generally  juvenils  of  the  filamentosus  have  stripes  till  around  2"  and  after  that  the  middle  band  moves  up  to  the  dorsal  fin  and  the  stripe  on  the  caudral  peduncle  gets  into  the  tear  drop.   And  above  all,  all  members  of  the  complex  have  the  trade  mark  black-red  blotch  on  either  forks  of  the  caudral  fin.

it  looks  like  the  x  breed  we've  been  seeing  in  the  UK,  the  cross  is  between  the  denisoni  and  the  everetti.  
                 

 
 Hmm,  if  it  really  turns  out  to  be  a  hybrid  I  have  to  think  what  I  shall  do  with  it.
 The  fish  can't  help  it,  but  the  people  who  make  it  (and  sell  it)  I  don't  understand.

 P.  fasciatus  doesn't  seem  to  eat  the  plants  yet.  I  only  see  occasionally  some  uprooted  Najas  or  Eleocharis.  Very Happy  
 
 Yesterday  I  bought  7  loaches.
 I  think  they  are  Mesonoemacheilus  triangularis  (There  are  many  wrong  labeled  fish  in  aquashops  over  here)

 your  spot  on  with  your  ID  Kajsa.  Thumb Up  
 great  fish  to  keep.
 watch  out  for  skirmishes  with  this  species,  they  just  about  tolerate  each  other  especially  where  food  is  concerned  and  give  them  plenty  of  caves  or  somewhere  to  call  their  home.

 Mine  don't  touch  the  plants  but  the  maculatus  I  have,  well  they  have  trimmed  my  stem  plants  and  even  nibbled  at  the  roots  of  Anubias!  They  left  the  crypts  and  Java  fern  alone,  whew!

 I  try  to  create  as  much  as  possible.
 
 
 Today  I  went  to  Germany  to  visit  a  big  aquariumstore.
 Saw  some  beautiful  Schistura  sp.  and  couldn't  resist  their  winking.  Smile  
 Tommorow  I  will  take  some  better  pics  and  maybe  you  can  help  me  ID-ing  them.
 
 Also  bought  a  powerhead.
 
 In/under  the  tank  (240  lt):
 
 Extern  filter  700  l/h
 Powerhead   1100  l/h
 DIY  powerhead  560  l/h
 
 I'm  thinking  of  replacing  the  last  one  by  a  second  external  filter.
 
 Some  first  shots

 Those  loaches  are  hard  to  photograph;  when  they  see  a  camera  they  go  into  hiding.

 Looks  like  either  Schistura  sp  'crimson'  or  Schistura  nilgiriensis.  But  im  a  noob  or  noobs  when  it  comes  to  IDing  so  good  chances  of  it  being  something  else.

 i  kept  thinking  sp  crimson  but  the  pattern  on  kajsa's  fish  is  to  fine  to  be  them,  i  believe  there's  a  number  of  similar  coloured  fish  in  India,  Beta  found  one  up  in  the  hills  that  looks  very  similar  to  the  fish  in  the  pic.

 Definitely  not  the  Crimson  loach.  The  other  one  could  be  an  Oreoncetes  sp.
 Kajsa:  Are  you  sure  that  these  loaches  are  from  India?

 No,  I'm  not  sure.
 I've  bought  them  in  Germany  as  Schistura  sp.  "crimson"  ,  but  I  had  my  doubts.

 At  this  moment  the  tank  looks  like  this
 
 
 
 Most  of  the  time  M.  triangularis  are  defending  their  own  little  territory.
 The  two  lying  peacefully  on  one  stone  is  an  exception.  Smile
