Great fish, very lively.
I had one of these years ago and loved it. I got one recently at the store and I fell in love with it again. This is a very lively and curious fish. A healthy specimen should not be skinny. It is not aggressive toward any fish, I have all size of fish in a tropical community tank, loach has been a model citizen.

incorect fish, over priced,
At my local pet stores, they often have Yo Yo loaches "incorrectly" labeled as angelicus botias, Yo Yo loaches are very common in the aquarium trade and often sold for less than $5 online or at other stores.
bottom line, if you purchase these fish, be sure that what you are buying is actually an angelicus botia and not a much cheaper yo yo loach.

I love my 3 Botias! They chase each other around and are always hanging around my other fish, angel fish and tetras. At first I was worried because they were not acting at hyper as they did at the store, but give them some time and they will be out and about in no time! Love them!

LOVES MY BUBBLER
He sits in my volcano bubbler all day long poking his head out and moving up and down. He is either swimming around eating stuff on the ground or in the bubbler, its hilarious.
