I posted a message on the forum a couple of months ago, where I tried to find out the species-description of my new loach, and now I think I know: The shop finally had several others of the same kind out for sale, labeled "rainbow-labeo" (?!). I pleeded for the fish encyclopedia that most stores keep under the counter, and looked up botia modesta. There it was! I remember that somebody suggested that back in june: Good guess!
So now that I know I have a botia modesta, reaching 13-14cm at time writing, should I consider buying more of them to keep him company? (I bought 3 botia macracantha last thursday!! I don't think my tank can take more of those going-big-fish!) His aggressiveness is OK, my b.morletis are worse;-)
