I finally got my loaches

I found some botia straita about 45 minutes away so I got six of them. Thay are very cool but don't seem interested in eating. I gave them flake and sinking shrimp pellets.

I also got four of the unknown striped loaches, they the exact same shape as the striatas. Oops, they also have the same base colour a yellowy colour. They have thich stripes with dots in them and a solid line down their faces.

I looked at the pictures on the spiece page again and they look most like the picture of the botia geto which says it is actually a Botia rostrata. I will get a picture to post ASAP.

Thanks for all your help in selecting my loaches and trying to idetify the unknown one.
