Botia kubotai (Polka Dot Loach)
A relatively new discovery is the Polka Dot Loach which is found in Myanmar and Thailand, and is known as Botia kubotai. It was during 2003 that the fish started arriving in the U.K and has proved to be a real hit with fish keepers given their attractive colouration. At present there appears to be two colour forms and it is still not known if in fact there are two separate species. The fish reach a maximum size of around 12cm and have a good temperament although they have been observed to squabble amongst themselves. The attached photograph is of the fish that have the more distinctive colouration whilst the other form is darker in colour with less vivid patterning. The darker form tends to be the more commonly available although in general these fish are still quite hard to come by. A worthy addition to your community tank.
