Justification: Botia almorhae is a widespread and hardy species with fairly common distribution in some areas. Although a few threats such as deforestation effects, fishing for ornamental trade are reported, until further studies are conducted to understand the impacts of these in the long run, the species is assessed as Least Concern.
The areas where the species is found is deforested and siltation causes choking of water body. Besides this, sand mining and quarrying and ornamental fish trade are the other concerns. However this species is hardy and widespread.
There are no known conservation measures documented for the species. Although it is a hardy species, the impacts of threats and ornamental fish trade need to be studied and monitored to understand population trends.
