free Leptobotia guilinensis

I have three loaches I will identify tentatively as Leptobotia guilinensis. They look identical to the fish in the last picture in that entry in the species index.

They are about 2-3 inches in length presently. They are pleasantly active, and seem to enjoy fast currents.

They are not overly aggressive. They seem to get on well with the Botia striata they share a tank with, but I would not put them in a community tank as they do seem to be fin nippers on slow moving or well finned fish.

Send email to me. First preference to someone who can pick them up. I am in Los Angeles.

I am uncertain about mailing these. First I am out of heat packs, second spines+bags+mail=potential disaster.
