In Response To: Question on Botia Morleti (Michael Ophir)
Mike, Lol has been running sufficiently long now that certain Questions re-occur.This is one of them. To re-iterate, morletti and horea are synonymouse names for the same fish, which may, or may not have vertical fine barring on the flanks. I've never actually seen eos other than in pics, but Skunk Botias, to give them their common name are distinctive in their arched back profile and flattish belly profile, eos is (as far as I can tell) a slimmer, more classic Botia shape.
