This new fish store, the first time I've been there has a tank full of fish called Raspberry and Blueberry Botias. They look very similar except for the color. One is a raspberry, purple and the other light blue. They are shaped similar to a clown loach.
The LFS was really uninformed, I asked him what it was and he said, it says there a botia, I said yes but what kind, and he said loach. I said what species, he said I don't know why do you want to know. I asked him how big it got and he held his hands apart about 10". I said about the same size as a full grown clown and he said no a lot bigger.
Then I wanted to get a female fiddler crab for my husband, and I had to tell him how to sex them.
I'm not sure if I'm going back for those
