Sinibotia robusta also called the Kansu loach

Every year in June is import season for Botia-like loaches from China. Sinibotia robusta is only known from Pearl River basin in southeastern China and northern Viet Nam (Cao Bang Province). The genus Sinibotia currently contains six species. The genus Sinibotia differs from Botia by the presence of three pairs of barbel (two maxillary, one mandibulary), while in Botia a fourth pair of barbels is present on the lower lip.
 
Sinibotia robusta is also known as the Kansu loach. This comparatively peaceful species is best kept at room temperature (18-24°C) without an additional heater. Maximum size reported for that species is about 18 cm, but in the wild most specimens become only 8-10 cm long.
 
For our customers: the fish have code 405053 on our stock list. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. This species is very attractive and deserves attention as it is listed on the IUCN Red List of Endangered Species so let’s keep it in the hobby! Only very few specimens available!
