I queried my ID with the senior author of the Lepidocephalichthys revision and he was happy with it

Beautiful h. confuzona! The fish really look healthy, not like I'm used to finding them in a shop.

Have you seen it burying itself your Darkness, and is it taking dried foods?

It's a very bold fish for such a small specimen. It just sits out in the open on the sand, in plain sight! I've not seen it eat yet. If I notice it eating dry foods I will let you know

He's definitely a filter feeder though too. He is going around the tank constantly shifting sand through his gills. He's not camera shy at all. Pic and grainy movie attached.

Any Ideas about this Loach?

[Image Can Not Be Found]
Found it in "Ornamental Aquarium Fish Of India" - Tekriwal and Rao. Somewhere in the net I've seen a photo of this loach. I guess it was an indian aquarist on Loaches Online, but can't find it quickly.

Cheers,
Thomas

That is more like a guntea type. Most have squared caudals but in Menon there is one with a rounded caudal.

Its foraging behaviour reminds me of the Acanthopsoides I have. Cute!

It's looking much healthier now, though it has kept the same length. When the tail is opened up it looks more lunate than forked, but when it is closed you can see the notch.
