ID this Loach please!

I was given this guy (girl?) and I don't know what s/he is!? Can anyone identify this loach?? Is s/he compatible with RCS and my Betta? What do I feed?

TIA!

That's a Chain Loach (aka Dwarf Loach). They need to be in shoals of at least 6 and reach 2.5 inches. They will take flakes, catfish pellet, algae wafers, and other small-sized frozen foods. They need a soft, sandy substrate that won't damage their barbels. 15 gallon minimum. They are generally peaceful and are good with fish with similar temperaments.

He's a Angelicus Botia Loach (Botia angelicus).. Not best for my tank as I only have a 10G. :( I guess I could try to bring him in and see if the fish store will exchange him towards a couple Kuhli Loaches maybe? I definitely need a loach to keep the snails down and clean the bottom as I'm not a fan or cories at all! (Sorry to the lovers!)
