Recent Loaches in a Show

Hey everyone,

Here are 3 loaches that I entered recently into the London ( Ontario, Canada ) Aquaria Society annual show:

Histrionica:

Dwarf Chain Loach:

So which one do you think came in first place in the class ?

Wow, all three are great looking! Tough call but I'd vote for the blue.
Currently keeping: gastromyzon spp., hypergastromyzon humilis, pseudogastromyzon sp., sewellia spp., ambastaia sidthimunki, homaloptera spp., serpenticobitis octozona, Yaoshania pachychilus. As well as various catfish, loricarids, livebearers and tetras.

Yes, the Modesta or Orange Fin Blue Botia was first in the loach class, then the Histi then the Sid.

By the way, you can navigate to other photos by clicking on next or prev ;)

The Modesta was Best Egglayer in the Show as well ... pretty good considering most of the fish in the show were egg layers
