Christmas arrived early!

And they all arrived at once.
I had never seen a Botia Modesta until a few weeks ago - and now I've got five! I have lusted after Modestas ever since I got into loaches, but never thought I would be lucky enough to own any. They are the most beautiful little fish (2" SL) and I can't wait for them to settle in.
Unfortunately one died within 20 minutes of being released and I've got no idea why. Another one looked a goner but came good in a couple of days. The LFS was great about it though, and replaced it immediately.
So far they have been very hard to photograph (apart from the one that died) but I will include some pics in my next Loach Gallery update, hopefully within the next week.
