Hi eveyone. I just went to my LFS to see if they had any new loaches in. Indeed they did. The owner of the store called me last night and said they have Dario in. I went today as I normally do checking each fish store, when I see 4 Batik loaches in one tank. I know that Ken said that these were a new loach from India. These were definetly not Botia Dario. I bought all 4 of them, (they were not that cheap) and they are very large. I just checked the picture of the Batik loach to make sure it was the same one. When I put them in one the tanks they they started to swim all over the tank finding every small object that was in the tank. They are great looking and very active loaches. First time I saw these loaches.
