Botia Kobatai aka Botia Angelicus


Also known as the Tattooed Loach, Burmese Loach, Burmese Border Botia, Myanmar Loach, Cloud Loach, PolkaDot Loach.

Origin: Myanmar
Temperature: 75-83
PH: 6.5 - 7.5
Maximum Size: 5 inches
Temperment: Peaceful community fish

These are very fun fish to keep, very social (should be kept in groups of 3 or more) and they are just plain fun as well as striking. The patterns vary some from fish to fish and some seem to "shimmer" more than others, but all are quite beautiful.

They are quite playful and will often "hang out" with the yoyos in our tank chasing each other around in a playful, non-aggressive manner.
