Assume that picture is a sewellia lineolata?   Reticulated hillstream loach.   Awesome looking fish!

:( Illegal import into Australia unfortunately.     In saying that I wouldn't be utterly surprised if there are some in peoples fish rooms somewhere.

Best of luck with your search.

not a legal import as of  10/2013

at rhe same time they were placed on the IUCN red list  as a vulnerable species

they may have been an allowable import up until that date so they could be in someones fishroom in a dark little corner

@Bender16  they are just your standard ones you see in the aquarium shops regularly being sold as Borneo Suckers.  Scientific name - Gastromyzon punctulatus which are the spotted borneo suckers.

I used to have them. Unfortunately lost them due to a bad water change after the real estate sent a guy out to replace the pump in the rain water tank and neglected to mention he added chemicals to the rain water tank. I was absolutely devastated as they had bred for me several times, I even had an albino sewellia colony. Would definitely be interested to know if anyone still has these as they were among my top 5 favourite fish
