Any guesses as to what a "tiger botia"might be?

That's what the lfs called it.

It is about 5 inches(127mm)long.Looks to me,a lot like a striata(quite thick body,similar head and tail) except it is mottled brown.I couldn't really discern any definite stripes.

I did a little searching and couldn't find anything that looked like it under that name.

They said that they might sell it but that it would be "expensive".

Can anybody ID it based on my description?
