Botia robusta

Wow!!! My favorite lfs got in a shipment of mixed Botia species last week and, after browsing through the fish I picked out a pair of these Botia robusta:

Then I was out today at lunch and stopped by a PetCo, of all places. I was amazed to see a tank full of Botia kubotai (which I had to buy a couple of). No pics of them yet....they're still hiding....but watch this space!

Actually....the Botia robusta are downright antisocial! They stick together but they chase every other loach that gets anywhere near their staked-out territory. No harm is done but I don't have high hopes for any schooling as far as they're concerned.

The Botia kubotai, on the other hand, seem to have taken a liking to my Yo-Yo Loaches, Botia almorhae. At least they aren't trying to kick the snot out of each other yet!!
