We received from Thailand this wonderful sport of the Blue Loach (Yasuhikotakia modesta, formerly known as Botia modesta). The species is well known for its variability. Most often the fish are blue with bright red fins, but the body colour can vary from blue over green to blue-grey and the fins can be anything from yellow over orange to deep red, all depending on the population. The tiger pattern a phenomenon that cannot be explained currenty, It appears from time to time, most often in younger specimens (this is the reason why it is often explained as a juvenile pattern), but it can also appear in adult fish.
