Botia almorhae (Pakistani Loach, Botia lohachata)
Juvenile fish are silvery-white with a few dark bands on them. As the fish mature, the ground colour darkens somewhat and the bands break up into more complex chains and loops.
This species is a confirmed snail eater. Often referred to as Botia lohachata in older aquarium books.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
This is a somewhat aggressive species of loach. In community tanks it usually gets along with robust species, such as clown loaches, medium sized barbs, plecs, etc., but it should not be kept with nervous or delicate species like discus.
