It has come to our attention that there are some contaminant loaches that look very similar to juvenile Kubotai in the same catch location as where these loaches are collected. Please be aware that we cannot 100% guarantee that the loach you receive will be a Kubotai. There is a small chance you may receive a B. cf. histrionica. We have yet to fill in descriptions and care for all our fish, so independent research is highly suggested prior to purchasing a fish you are unfamiliar with. Many fish have variable color and shape depending on their sex, age, or catch location, and some require specific care that makes them incompatible with other fish. If you have any questions about specific fish, our team is more than happy to help!
