Polka dot loaches

Postby ali12345 » Thu Feb 02, 2017 1:46 pm

Hi I was wondering of anyone could help with the difference between my 2 shoals of polka dot loaches?
I have had them all several years now and they no longer seem to grow. One lot have reached the standard 4-5" but the others are all smaller closer to 3-4" . All happy and healthy. Does anyone know if there are different sizes from different localities? Bought from different shops and I have no idea on their origin. Don't think I have any pictures of them but their patterning seems normal for Botia kubotai. Noen are as big as my yo-yos.

Are they in different tanks?
Maybe some minor difference between the tanks?
38 tanks, 2 ponds over 4000 liters of water to keep clean and fresh.

Happy fish keeping!
