Botia striata “Zebra Loach”


Described by Seriously Fish as “perhaps the best choice of Botia sp. for the general community given its adult size and peaceable nature”, the Zebra Loach, Botia straita, should be a welcome addition to any fishroom. They max out around 3.5″ in length. This species prefers the company of its own kind, and is very gregarious. I think a group of 6 probably makes the ideal setup, so I’d encourage you to purchase them in groups unless adding to a group already on hand. Loaches like this Zebra Loach are known for their ability to control (or even eliminate) snail populations, and these guys appear to be no exception.
