A loach makes a sucking action and has a large mouth (sucker) with which it attaches to the glass. A SAE has barbs near its small mouth and a blackish stripe that runs the length of the fish.

I hope this helps to distinguish what you have got :)

Differentiating between the various species of Flying foxes and SAE look alikes is more difficult.
