Got me some mystery botia's!

Ok, so I went to the LFS to pick up the "red tailed botia's" that had arrived and low and behold, 2 very different fish.

I'm not sure, but I think I got an Eos, and a Modesta (although it may be a lecontei). THe modesta(?) is a little bit beat up, he was in with some young Oscars and took a nasty nip, but he just looks a little bit bruised (you can see it behind his eye). He is look much better already since he has acclimated to his new surroundings.

Here is the Eos (going in the 135 gallon tank)

and here is the modesta(?) (going in the 45 gallon tank with the other modesta.
