I've had this loach for maybe 6 months now, or more. I bought him as botia sidthimunki, but at 2 inches and lacking many of the chains, I'm having doubts. He clearly has only one chain down the back like a sid, but lacks some chains on the sides at two inches like a nigrolineata. I've looked at the species pages on both, as well as the comparison, and I'm thoroughly confused. He seems to show characterisics of both. So that's why I'm asking you guys =). In the 6 months I've had this fish, he's gotten more chains, but hasn't grown much at all (well.. maybe you shouldn't trust that, one of my fish grew 3 inches right under my nose w/o me noticing..). Below is a link to a pic of the loach in question. I didn't know how to get it directly on this page, and escuse it being on a reef site.. If more photos are needed, I can take more, jus
