Botia rostrata for sale oahu?
Hey all. Today I picked up a new 5g tank setup off CL (thanks buddy!), already planted with some hair grass and moss. He'd had some fish in it but they weren't part of the deal so he netted them out before siphoning out most of the water.
Get it home, set it up, and fill it with water from the tank that the betta I bought it for was living in, and wait for it to settle down (it got a little shaken up on the way home). Go back and check on it a little while later and there's a fish swimming up and down the back wall! One of the fish the previous owner had kept had hidden himself down in the grass and escaped the net.
I netted it out and ID'd him as a ladder loach. Called the guy back, he wasn't worried about me bringing it back, so I moved it into the big tank and now I'm looking to find it some friends.
Anyone know of any store on Oahu that sells them or can get them in?
