I can't remember for sure what the store told me when I bought this. I've looked at all sorts of pics of what I thought it was and what it could be, but nothing seems to match exactly.

Look at the next post on this thread for more pics.

Some more pics of it

maybe gara rufa or Garra annandali

Garra species — Loaches Online

it's a type of loach
Thanks for the link. I think it's actually a Garra Ceylonensis, but it's hard to find common names for these. Whatever it is, I'm fairly certain it's not what the store told me it was. I thought it was an oto or a siamese ae.

Mr. Green Was Very Close

Today, I went into the fish store where I bought it and they had some more. They called it a Garra Pingi. Here is a link to a site that has info on it. Maybe one of the other Garra's that mistergreen linked to is the same one with a different name.

hmmm. i don't know if it's garra pingi, the head doesn't seem right...
well, you thought you got an oto or SAE but these guys can't be dependent on eating/cleaning algae.
