More botia questions

Hi, folks...how big do rostratas get? It doesn't say in the species index, only that young ones grow quickly, and the one reference I found in the archives in an admittedly quick search says maybe 4 inches but not sure of max size...I need to know because...

I HAVE ONE!!!! :-) :-)

The little guy was swimming around so fast in the lfs (and in the bag) that all I could determine was "small fast botia" until I got him home...he's having to reside with my discus until I decide what to do with him, so I hope they don't bother each other, but I think the rummynose tetras will help him feel secure, and I'm adding more hiding places...I know I'll have to find him some buddies but I've never seen a live rostrata before, so who can he get along with? Not the modestas, I'm sure of that...yoyos?

Iris - I'm crazy, I know, but I had to have him :-)
