I had always wanted to get some modestas but I never really had a tank for them. They are just to aggressive to put in my other loach tanks. I have a Lake Malawi African cichlid tank, which are pretty aggressive, so it dawned on me the other day to give it a try. I went and bought 3 botia modestas and added them to the cichlid tank. When I put them in, the cichlids hid in their caves immediately. I couldn't believe it, but the modestas actually chased them out of their caves. The modestas are about an inch smaller than the cichlids, so I was quite surprised to see this. After everyone settled down they all went and hid in caves. Now all of the fish will only come out
