    I believe it was advertised as “golden zebra loach” but I’m not to sure that that’s true. Can anyone tell me exactly what it is and how long it will get?

    Looks like a Gold Zebra Loach to me, but Im no loach expert.

    I believe it is a yo-yo loach.

    Yes after further research I think it is a gold zebra loah aka botia histrionica. It’s not a yoyo though because they say “yoyo” down their side.

    It is a very young fish and its pattern will change over time. It looks to me like the top of all the bars are split, which is a Yoyo. I can find no images of Golden Zebra where the tops of the bars are split like that, theirs tend to split in the middle first. Both species are quite variable in pattern; not all Yoyos have perfect "Y" markings.

    That looks like a young yo-yo loach. They get kinda big so I would do some research on them.
