3 species of Botia was found > 2 photographed > the other too freakish
B. eos are always under the shaded rocks. They darted from one to another. This is the best I can do.
B. eos with Crossocheilus sp.
B. morletti 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.

Think that's a Macrobrachian species. They get huge.mamaschild wrote:Fabulous, Nonn
I have a question.....in your first link, the 6th photo is of a LARGE Prawn with Blue claws in a tank with kids looking at it. What is that????
If it's what I think it is, a friend has one....can't remember the name of it, though
Fantastic pictures as usual Nonn. Always love the underwater shots.
