I bought these as Peppermint loaches and as soon as I put them in qt figured they may be Schistura mahnerti 'Red Tail Zebra Loach'. Based on what I read online it seemed like they may be one of the few "mean" loaches. In a 10 gallon qt they did fine with Hillstreams and Flagfish for over a month so I figured they'd do fine in my 340 with a ton of hiding places. It seems like they are bullying the bottom dwellers and my snails are disappearing. Can anyone id these for sure based on this picture? I'd never be able to net them out of the tank, does anyone have any experience with making a fishtrap or have any other ideas? Thanks.
