Re: Squabbling Zebra

On this site http://www.aquabotanic.com/?tag=burmese-zebra-loach it's says that "As these fish mature their pattern lightens and becomes less distinct. Curiously, in times of aggression these and some other Botias “grey – out” in which the pattern and color washes out – almost completely." Also on t...

Re: Zodiac (Batik) Loach is mean! Help!

Thank you Monica & Dave for your suggestions.
I returned my Zodiac loach to the store i got him at and explained the situation. They were very understanding of the situation and promised to find him a good home, even gave me store credit ;)
