Finally got some B.striata

After a year long and fruitless searching, I finally found some B.striata!!! I went to my LFS yesterday to buy fish food when the lfs owner who knows that I like Botias casually mentioned that he has some zebra loaches. It made my day. I bought 8 tiny one inch striatas. Gonna keep 4 and give two pairs to friends of mine that also keep loaches.

I am suprise just how small they are in real life. Guess I am so used to seeing my 5 to 9 inches loaches. Will they grow bigger in time? How big?

They are still in my quarantine tank. I am just wondering whether they will dissapear in my 90 gallon planted tank just like the kuhli loaches.

Do they get along with clown, blues(modesta), and B.helodes?

Any info and advice about keeping B.striata is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
