So two fish needing ID

one: Ireally needed some Siamese algae eaters in my tank because I am currently battling BBA. But when I asked for some at the store they took me over to the “black line flying fox” and gave me one. They looked like sae so I ignored the sign and brought one. Would love someone else opinion

two, I want to buy some clown loaches for my tank but the ones online are in a bundle with an other fish. Can anyone ID it please

It’s difficult to see in the picture but I don’t think that is Epalzeorhynchos kalopterus or the true flying fox. They usually have black on their fins and a tannish color on top. I’ll attach a picture of one of mine.
I have no idea what that loach is but he is gorgeous! I think definitely some kind of Botia species and my
best guess would be botia kubotai
Do you already have him? And he’s the only one?

I believe the Botia is an Angelicus Loach. Fairly expensive fish.

The loach looks like a polka dot loach to me like basil has suggested.
