Raising HELodes or...

Well the two Tiger Botias, that I picked up the other day, lived up to their reputations. I wasn't prepared, but couldn't bear to pass on them, so I bought them anyway and temporarily put them in my community tank. The owner at the LFS assured me that they had been little angels while under his care, so I thought that I might get away with it for a little while. They chased just about everything. Actually, the poor peaceful Geophags got the worst of it. Them and the RTBS have quite tattered fins, though the RTBS was about the only fish that I saw chasing them in turn.

I got my rearranging done today, and the two helodes, now share a 40g long with nine modestas.
