I bought a botia dario last weekend and placed him in a small tank with (2) kuhli loaches, (1) botia lohachata, (1)albino dojo looking something or other. Anyway, the dario is thusfar a handsdown favorite of mine. This particular botia jumps at anything and doesn't look like he's swimming, but rather, hopping around the tank. After being evicted from his first chosen cave by the larger botia lohachata and albino dojo he ran over to the next available rock, backed underneath it a bit and started swatting the substrate back and forth with his tail. This guy is cool!
