Habitat: Mul River, Tributary of Mae Kong in North Eastern Thailand
3 species of Botia was found > 2 photographed > the other too freakish
are always under the shaded rocks. They darted from one to another. This is the best I can do.
live in small school of 3-6. They foraged in open area and was a lot more easy to photograph.
New location in Mae Kong river.
The water was merky. I found this loach with white body, solid black banded on two sides and one right one top. The first though was B. nigrolineata
, but on close examination it was more Nemacheiline type, like very large Nemacheilus but...what Nemacheilus? After a while, it disappeared in to the deeper part of the river and I was able to take only one lousy shot of it. I know the picture is too poor to tell, just want to get some though from you guys.
