Are you sure it is a freshwater sole, especially if they had no name or label for it?

Maybe it was the more commonly seen Hillstream Loach (also know as Borneo Sucker)?

There is some information here http://www.loaches.com/species-index/be ... ichowensis and pictures so you can check.

I have often seen these in tanks with cool water fish in various fish shops.

Borno suckers will not eat plants but there very hard to care for most die on their first night they also need the lower end of the tropical temp scale 20-23ish take a lot of extra care with it
