Yasuhikotakia splendida (Splendid Loach, Botia splendida)

A very distinctive and attractive species, as its name suggests, this fish is basically greenish-yellow. Entirely ringing the base of the tail is a very thick black band edged with with off-white or pink. The tail fin itself is yellow and spotted with black patches and stripes. The dorsal and anal fins are greenish-yellow close to the body, marked with a black band close to the edge, and then fringed with white. Yasuhikotakia caudipunctata is similar, but has spots on the dorsal and anal fins instead of thick black bands.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

This is a fast-water species that lives in streams and rivers across pebbly or rocky substrates. As such, it needs an aquarium with plenty of water current, lots of oxygen, and a complex substrate with large rocks or caves in which these fish can hide. They are relatively shy fish, and while not completely peaceful, they do well with robust tankmates such as barbs and catfish.
