Just saw this on aquabid. labeled "Peach Panda Loach". Look sort of like s. balteata. Anyone seen this fish?

Looks like one of the S. cf. balteata forms.

It does Matt, but different than any I've seen. The dorsal fin is right but the dorsal markings on the body are different. Head & shape look unusual to me also but that could be the pic? You're probably right and it's just an odd specimen.
I got a reply from the seller as to origin. He said unknown, he got them for Germany and they didn't have any location.

Possibly not an aberrant specimen but from a different population?

Here's one of my old ones - not too dissimilar?
