<< Hello! I have seen a hillstream loach and also a freshwater flounder at my
LFS, and they are definitely different fish. I consulted Dr. Axelrod's
Atlas, and I am pretty sure that the flounder I've seen is Achirus lineatus.

as i said, i suspect most of the FW flounders we see in shops are hogchokers,
native SW flounders.
i wonder why importers don't get the true tropical FW flounders (Achirus
fromS. America and i believe there are SE Asian species too). probably
because there's no demand?
