You got yourself a species of borneo loach 🙂

Finally got one of my hillstream loaches. They are shy little buggers. They make you work to get a photo. 

Very cool! What does your setup look like for them?

Hmm, I hadn’t even researched it, just set up the tank a while ago and when the LFS had some “hillstream loaches” I bought a group with hopes of breeding, that’s crazy, that would explain things 

They are really fun to have, very similar, just slightly smaller and more chill.  I love the blue tail, very unique.

they hide so much, super cool though 

They tend to avoid very bright lights.  Give them some cover and they'll probably hang out there or on the back glass by the filter input/output.  They tend to be most active right before or just after the lights come on or right after they go out.  They aren't really nocturnal, but it all depends on the setup.

best of luck!  Rachel has a ton of videos on hillstream species and loaches in particular.
