Hey guys,

I went home last night from school for the first time this year and after having dinner with my parents went to observe how the fish were faring. They all looked great, healthy and happy.
However, upon observing the shoal of Botia cuadipunctata I purchased last month, I noticed that the largest one was developing thick, light, beige bands on the body near the caudal fin. It was only in this specimen as the other specimens seemed to have regular body coloration.
Has anyone else had similar observations regarding this species?
