Botia Darios at Petsmart!!

I went browsing in a Petsmart today, as I often do, to look for hillstreams and other fish that come in by mistake with other orders. I got several homalopteras that way last year. Anyway, I looked in a tank, and there was this beautifully colored 1.25 inch dario, all by itself. I really didn't need another, but I hated leaving this gem of a fish in the hands of Petsmart, so I bought it. I'm keeping it separate of my other botias for now, to make sure it didn't catch anything at Petsmart. I was surprised to see this fish there. Apparently, however, it is on there ordering list of botias. So there may be more out there. The price was an unbelievable $3.99 + tax.
