    Well I never ever thought this day would come but I am stumped...

    The wholesalers received a new load of fish and called me in to look at these guys... they don't know what they are and they were mixed in between the Neons. I'm afraid I couldn't help them either

    The picture is not the best... but the red on the end of the tail is bright neon red like in denisonii barbs...

    Has anyone here come across this fish?



    Many thanks for helping me hunt xxx

    They look like a type rasboras not Harlequin rasboars with those black triangles on them but the shape of the body is very similiar in body type but cannot find the colors like the picture you provided.

    I could be completely off but the body shape looks like a some rasboras

    They do have similiarities with the Rasbora sp.cf.borapetensis & Rasbora kalbarensis but they are different these ones... they only have the one bright bright red stripe and underneath a black one

    As I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.
