Pictures of B. histrionica & B. geto

This message is in response to the recent messages regarding these 2 species of botia. Well, I don't really know how to upload pictures from my harddrive to a bulletin board such as this one, so if anyone is interested in a scanned picture of Botia histrionica or B. geto, I would be happy to attach them to you in an email.

I scanned the picture of B. histrionica from "How to Have a Successful Aquarium" by Stephan Dreyer and Rainer Keppler, TFH 1996. There was no additional info given about the fish, just a labeled photo.

The B. geto picture came from Baensch Atlas 3.

Feel free to contact me by email if you would like one or both pictures.
