About a month ago the shop I buy my fish from suggested I take the Botia Nigrolineata it had as it was malnourished. It was in a tank with various loaches and seemed to be having trouble competing. I have been feeding it flakes and it is now doing very well ...Now it's growing it goes ballistic for food long after the other fish have settled down. What else do they eat (I've tried bananas and corgettes? And how big do they generally grow to?
