I’m Chris from Switzerland and I just discovered this « loaches site » with all references… I have a project of breeding botias striata and I wanted to know if someone on this site had any information about it.

The tank is running from about 1 year with a few rasboras heteromorpha witch where here to keep the tank alive.

Could you he
