 I  got  a  few  wild  caught  Botias  recently.  The  lot  consisted  of  3  differently  patterned  morphs  of  the  same  species  or  are  they  hybrids?
 
 Any  speculations?
 
 Or  they  all  entirely  new  species?  Too  far  fetched.....
 
 Anyway  here  they  are  -
 
 
 This  fish  has  round  markings  along  it's  flanks  and  straitations  along  it's  back.
 
 
 
 Of  the  three  fish  here,  the  first  one  in  the  fore  ground  is  as  above,  the  one  behind  it  has  a  marbled  pattern  where  as  the  third  one  behind  it  has  these  cross  patterns  mirrored  about  the  lateral  line.
 
 
 
 Here  are  2  more  specimens  with  the  markings  mirrored  about  the  lateral  line.
 
 
 
 
 
 This  image  above  shows  three  specimens  with  varying  degrees  of  the  round  marking  along  the  flanks.  The  dorsal  area  is  still  straitated.
 
 
 
 This  specimen  has  the  beginnings  of  the  marbled  markings  on  the  dorsal  area.
 
 
 
 Another  specimen  with  marbled  markings  on  the  dorsal  area.  Some  of  the  markings  are  smaller  in  size  and  getting  rounded....  or  is  it  my  imagination?  :lol:  .
 
 
 
 Here  are  2  more  varied  specimens  for  you  to  compare.
 
 
 All  this  has  occured  in  nature.  Anyone  interested  in  developing  a  fully  "round  spotted  botia"  you  have  a  head  start  here.
 
 Anyone  interested  in  developing  a  new  strain?
 
 Hello  I  can't  hear  you?  Are  you  interested?    Smile

 Hi,
     The  differently  patterned  morphs  of  botia  will  have  to  be  named.  It  will  be  a  difficult  task.  Qualified  members  in  the  subject  like  Dolphi  could  guide  us.

 A  Taxonomist  should  Classify  and  identify  those  fish,  preferably  someone  from  ZSI.    Smile

 Yes,  Noemacheilus  triangularis  they  are.  And  in  some  places  called  Mesonoemacheilus  triangularis  too.  Commonly  known  as  Zodiac  Loach.
 Man...  I  am  badly  looking  for  these.  Madan  could  you  tell  me  where  you    caught  these  plz  ??

 Suby  I  don't  know  where  they  were  caught,  they  are  all  wild  caught  no  doubt.
 
 They  were  gifted  to  me  to  ID  them.
 Unfortunately  all  died  within  48  hrs.

 Sad  to  hear  that  they  died  out  so  fast.
 Infact  these  are  very  active  fish  and  their  movements  resemble  that  of  a  lizard  or  so  Smile  -  they  swim  only  when  you  try  to  catch  them.
 Mine  lived  for  atleast  3-4  months  -  then  suddenly  died  -  I  wonder  why.

 These  loaches  come  from  fast  flowing  waters  and  are  sensitive  to  dissolved  oxygen  levels,  especially  when  freshly  caught.  It  is  best  to  keep  newly  accquired  fish  in  a  small  tank  with  lots  of  aeration  initially.  Gradually  reduce  aeration  over  the  next  few  weeks,  before  introducing  them  to  your  community  tank.

 Medan,
 
 The  one  with  the  strip  is  Nemacheilus  triangularis  and  the  one  with  the  round  pattern  is  N.  geuntheri.    
 
 Genus  Noemacheilus  is  synonym  of  Nemacheilus  and  no  longer  in  use.
