Those are stunning!

I wonder if anyone is importing them to the US yet?

They remind me of juvenile Bamboo Sharks.

I found this little bit about them from a German fish importer:

"For the first time we were able to import these charming hillstream loaches. Due to their origin (China) and their black&white coloration we call them dwarf panda hillstream loaches. Although the species has been scientifically described back in 1980 in a Chinese journal almost nothing has been published concerning the beautiful animal since then.

Our specimens are around 3 cm long. Unfortunately we have no reliable information about how big they can grow. But there can be no doubt that these small beauties that seem not be be delicate at all are a „must have“ for any real loach enthusiast."

As beautiful as this fish is, I hope not.
Appears they come from a very small geographic area, and are endangered.

I'm with you on this. Their price tag reflects that.

Here's some good info on these guys.http://www.seriouslyfish.com/species...a-pachychilus/ . Notice they don't keep that pattern as adults.

If success or failure of this planet and of human beings depended on how I am and what I do. How would I be? What would I do?
