I was just wondering where everyone was from. The reason I ask is because where I live it seems that no one carries any loaches besides clowns. I've traveled to quite a few pet stores and I cant find any, and I've stopped calling pet stores because when I ask if they carry loaches or botias they ask me "What's that"? Then I explain it as best as I can and they say "NO" without even looking. Nice huh? I did manage to come across Wet Pets Plus Aquarium Store and he had yo-yo's! So I bought them but those were the only loaches he had. What I'm looking for now is botia striata. I'm from Northeast Ohio. I could always order them but I don't know if that would be safe for the fish, has anyone ordered fish before? Any-who thanks for reading my post and thanks in advance for your respons
