What type of fish is this?
I bought a fish about 3 weeks ago, and it's getting along very well with all my fish. I noticed that he is a little aggressive but for the most part he (or she) is very passive. The pet store told me it was a zebra botia but i don't think so because i have a zebra botia. Anyways, it's fast and i can't take a picture of it. but just to give you guys an idea, it's the fish in the backgrownd. It doesn't have wiskers, nor it's mouth is pointing down like botia fish, and it's not a Botia Robusta. any ideas?:question:
You are asking about the yellow and black fish, behind the loach? Does it stay at the bottom of the tank?
Try again, to get a better shot of it.
If so it will get big
I guess you meant Botia striata.
It likes to hang out towards the bottom, mostly in the cave area of my fish tank.
Here's a photo of Leporinus fasciatus. This fish grows to 12 inches, is known as a fin nipper and "bully" to smaller fish, and requires plant/vegetable food. It is also good at jumping out of tanks, so keep it well covered. But what size is your tank? This fish needs room, a tank of at least 4 feet in length is recommended. Fish stores too often have these fish as juveniles, they are very attractive, and aquarists not knowing what they are getting buy them; store staff sometimes don't have the knowledge to explain the difficulties.
