Don't know much about these fish but a quick look at cat-elog and I would guess G. playtpogon, then possibly G. deqinensis. Other would include: forabilis, igniculus. Good luck!

Are those red spots on the underside lice? Photo is a bit grainy to be sure, but worth checking out with a magnifying glass.

This is Glyptothorax fuscus, almost certainly from southern Thailand.
