I picked up some Botia striata today for my 55 Gallon Rainbowfish Tank.

The tank is now home to:

8 x Red Platies
8 x Zebra Danios
6 x Red Rainbowfish (3M, 3F)
4 x Blue Rainbowfish (M)
5 x Zebra Loach

The only other fish I plan on adding is a Bristlenose Pleco.

I thought the Zebra Loaches would be more shy at first, but they're already very active and busy exploring their new environment.

Many thanks to everyone who helped me with stocking tips the last couple of months.

Think others here would agree that's arguably the best choice of Botia for your size and style of community tank. Hope they do well for you. /thumbs_up.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumbsup:" border="0" alt="thumbs_up.gif" />

Cake or death?

They're my favorites now! They're so lively, two of them frequently swim to the top of the tank with the other fish.
