Banded Loach

A few messages ago, I asked if it was a good idea to isolate an aggressive banded loach. I wish I had when I had the chance because he apparently starved my weather loach to death. According to my relatives who were taking care of the fish in my absense, the weather loach would not get a chance to eat because the botia would chase it away and eat up all of the food. I don't know if this is a valid statement, but I'm warning anybody who is considering buying this aggressive botia to think twice before they do, because it may result in fish deaths
