Hi everyone. Today I went to Harvard Square just to walk around with my family. We decided to walk into a Fish store. I was looking through all the tanks, (which were very nicely stocked with plants and fish) but so far didn't see anything of particular interest to me. So, I'm looking at the name tags that are on one of the tanks. Then I see it. On one of the tags there it says Sidthimunki Botia. Well, I looked all over the tank but couldn't find any Sid. I asked the owner if he still had any, but he said he wasn't sure. When he is picking up all of the hiding places, a large Sid swims out!!! There was only one, so I took it. He said that he sold one already. I have to say that this adult Sidthimunki looks very interesting. It is about 2.8 inches long. It still displays some of the behaviors
