"We have a community tank with 7 long-finned rosy barbs, 2 dojo loaches (one golden/albino), 1 pictus catfish, 1 long-nosed whiptail, 3 gold gouramis, and 2 blue/red-finned botias. We have had all but the gouramis and botias for 2 months now, the botias and gouramis being a new addition in the last 2 weeks. For the first few days, the botias stayed hidden, even at night when the light was out. Now they are very much active at night and make several appearances throughout the 'day' too/when the light is on. We have noted in the past 2 days red marks/dots on our golden dojo loach - my guess is the botias have become aggressive with him at night when the lights are out as he is 'easier' to see in the dark than our other fish..... Thoughts? Comments? We lost a larger dojo loach a few days ago due to what we thought may have been 'nighttime' aggressive as well, though this loach had a habit of getting himself in places too small for him - we noted a long gash on his top 'side' near the tail."
