Offering Sewellia lineolata (Tiger Hillstream Loach).

The most obvious external characteristics are the shape of the head and body when viewed from above, with females having a comparatively broad body and a snout running almost continuous with the pectoral fins. Males are slighter and the snout is much squarer in shape with the pectoral fins emerging from the body almost at right-angles. Sexually mature males also develop rows of soft, raised tubercules on the anterior portion of the first 5 – 6 pectoral-fin rays which have been referred to as ‘fences’ in the hobby, plus additional rows on the dorsal surface of the head.
