I have a picture of this little fish, anyone her that can help me ID it. I am thinking of Aanthocobitis rubidipinnis or Aanthocobitis botia, but not sure. Could it be a Schistura or Nemacheilus? Or a completely different one? I may be on a completely wrong path, because I have no idea.

It has a black spot close to the caudal fin, an big eye, and I can count 9 or 10 rays in the dorsal fin. It has a bluish colure, and many black bars.

I don’t know much about it. It is 5 cm, and I have no idea where it came from.

Yunnanilus cruciatus, or something similar? Only confusing bit is the size...

Cake or death?

Size (3.5-4cm is more like it)... and I never saw them so fat... but otherwise it looks like Yunnanilus cruciatus all right....
