Sinibotia robusta (Golden Striped Loach, Botia robusta)

A subtropical species often confused with Sinibotia superciliaris. However, this species has a more golden colour, and where the vertical bands on Sinibotia superciliaris are more or less solid, though fading somewhat towards the belly, on Sinibotia robusta the bands typically fork about halfway down the flanks.

A subtropical species that lives in streams and rivers, this fish appreciates not-too-warm, well oxygenated water and a substrate contain sand for digging and rocks for hiding among. Fairly aggressive and territorial, these fish fight among themselves and other tankmates.

Breeding in aquaria unknown
