Besides I need to buy paint that doesn't have any fumes because I found out that the paint I bought caused me to get a bad case of bronchitis (fun stuff).
:Whine: I want those babies.
I saw one sales person selling this guy a desktop tank (couldn't have been any more then 2 gallons) and a CLOWN LOACH to go in it.
Granted, this clown loach was only an inch or so long (a BABY BABY) I set the guy buying the fish straight and told him that the fish will get to be over a foot long.

So many species of fish so little time, space and money to keep them all...
I just took a few pictures with my old camera. The fish are really fast, so it's difficult to get decent pictures. I bought both of these fish at the same time, and they looked identical. In the first picture, you can see the baby Kubotai in the right hand side of the picture that hasn't developed as quickly. The other 2 pictures are of the second fish. Now it's starting to show white spots inbetween. I didn't notice this until tonight.
And btw, <3 your striata -- so cute! I want some very much. Sigh.
Yeah the ones I saw were ALL stripes with some having a bit of separation in the stripes but no horizontal bars. I still want those little cuties SOOOO BAD!
It looks exactly like what I purchased as dario loaches. They're definitely NOT kubotias. The kubs have a yellow tinge to them and the darios are very white. The confusing thing is my darios look nothing like the ID photos on loaches.com. The stripes are completely different.
Maybe a hybrid of some kind? Or a juvenile and the strips will change?
Here is a link that shows their color development as they grow up.
