In Response To: Tiger Botia (Shark)

I just got three botia striata(zebra loach) about three weeks ago. They are very peaceful, interesting and beautiful fish. There are several people on this board who have had them for much longer and would know more than I. So you might want to check the archives. Look at the species index to make sure its not a real Tiger botia, they have a much more agressive temperment than the striata. I recently posted a message adressing the variety of names for same loach species, so I understand your confusion. Good luck.
