Kuhli loach - a 4-inch, eel-like loach. I love eels, but they get way too big. These guys are social, so you can have a little family of wee clown-striped eels in your tank.

Maybe I need more than one aquarium.

Reticulated Hillstream Loach (Sewellia lineolata)

Also known as the Tiger Hillstream Loach, the reticulated hillstream loach is a species of river loach that is native to Vietnam.  Like other hillstream loaches S.lineolata is a rheophile, an animal that inhabits rapids, and is often seen clinging to rocks with its modified ventral fins. Reticulated hillstream loaches are active during the day and will feed mostly on algae but are known to eat small benthic invertebrates as well.
