    I got it at the LFS and they told me what it was, but i cant remember...i know hes not native for my tank, but hes got quite the personality and was in with the malawi's so i brought it home :)

    Seems to be nocturnal as it hides in the driftwood all day and doesnt move much. i caught him wiggling out of his hole tonight!

    I wish i had done some research on it first, but here i am...

    my decorus doesnt seem too thrilled to have him in the tank though, lol

    55 - 16 Malawi Chiclids, 3 Zebra Dainos, one Decorus, two Yo Yo's
    10 - 1 male betta, 1 Striped Raphael, 4 Cory Cats, 4 Ottos, 1 ghost shrimp, 1 Bristlenose
    29 - Lionhead goldfish, 3 Fancy Goldfish, Common pleco
    29 - Saltwater, still in the planning/building stage

    Botia almorhae. Yo Yo loach. Prefers soft and slightly acid water, by the way.

    They're social critters, best to get several more to keep that one company. They do get rather squirrely on their own for too long, and will become a problem for the other fish w/out others of their own species to interact with. I had a lone red-tail botia that killed a few praecox rainbows in a 55, mainly Tanganykian tank.
