Hi Everyone. I just recieved my Loach book in the mail called "Keeping Loaches in the Home aquarium." By Dr. Peter Anthony Lewis. It's 74 pages, and has some useful info. It starts off saying how he got interested in Loaches. Then it's a introduction to the family. Afterwards he describes the Botia family. After about 10-14 or so Botia species he moves on to talk about the Loaches. He gives info on about 15 species. After that, it mentions on how to treat diseases that occur in Loaches.The photographs are of B. Lohachata, "B. Dario" (Rostrata), B. Pulchripinnis, B. Leconte, B. Modesta, B. Morleti, B. Striats, B. Lucasbachi, Shelford's Khuli Loach, Various Khuli Loaches, Waether Loaches, Horse Faced Loaches, and Nome
