Rostrata or almorhae? *PIC*

I bougth 3 years ago two botia almorhaes from local pet shop. But when time goes by the other loach grew much bigger than the other. Bigger loach is 10-12 cm long and smaller is 5-6 cm long. The patterns are also quite different. Is it possible that the smaller loach is botia rostrata? I've come to this conclusion and now I want second opinion. The pictures are taken form video and the quality isn't very good. The blue glow in the upper corner of almorhae picture is reflection from TV-screen.
