I have this loachy loach that I have posted a young picture of before. It was said that it was a B. Lecontei, well while just searching pictures of botia sp. on google as I like to browse the loaches I come across the picture in the link below. The markings and the blueish color below the dorsal fin are exactly my loach. It looks a lot like that picutre only FATTER. When do Lecontei usually lose their striping? I've had my loach now for I'll guess like 7 months and it still has stripes. Just curious on everybody's opinions.
