Botia Geto

The link to the archives seems to be on the blink, so my apologies if this is an oft-posted message:

Anyone know much about the Botia Geto? I was in a LFS the other day and these were mixed in with some YoYo's. I asked the fish woman how much they were and she looked at the YoYo tag and quoted me that price. I explained to her that these were two similar, but different fish. She claimed they were the same, but that the Getos (at least what I believe to be getos) were just younger versions of the YoYos. Needless to say, I told her I disagreed and left with my newly purchased Horse-Faced loaches....

Soooooo.....any thoughts on the Getos would be appreciated...any experiences, problems, etc etc....i'd like to take a better look at them to confirm that they are what I think they are.... Thanks much, Andy
