Finally found what I was looking for!

Today at around 5:30 p.m. I got a message from the Manager of Petco saying they got Tiger Botias in. I was told there were about 11-12 of them. When we got there I found out that they were Botia Beauforti. I was looking for this fish recently. The 6 that were there looked very healthy and I got 5 of the Botia Beauforti. They were sold under the name Tiger Botia (Botia Hyemenophysa). They look very interesting and have interesting behaviors. In the tank at Petco they weren't aggressive at all. Just wanted to share.

P.S. the also had some nice blue rams there.
