Botia Dario in NYC

I stopped by Petqua here in Manhattan yesterday to pick up the only 2 Moose Faced loaches to survive the trip from India. I Feel kinda bad now having ordered them. Some 2-3 dozen Moosies perished in several failed shipments just to get this pair. :-(

They are in the Q-Tank where I'm watching them guardedly. They are good sized and not thin, but eating very little.

Anyway, while I was checking them out at the store, I noticed that they were sharing a tank with what looked to be several Botia Dario. It's not a species I've seen too often in shops here so I though I'd pass the info. on to my fellow Loach lovers. :-)
