    Hi I was wondering what fish is this. It is native here in Thailand, and it grows to about 15 - 20cm in length It's a river fish. Obviously a cyprinid, but not sure which group or species. I was thinking rasbora, but I don't know.



    any ideas

    Kind of looks like a Rasbora dusonensis. Only the stripe along its side isn't really standing out.
    Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark

    Whatever it is, it's pretty. Love those bright silver scales

    The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act

    where did you get that fish? at a fish market or caught yourself?
    note the faint markings on the tail, a black stripe followed by an orange one.

    I thought of rasbora caudimaculata but in a rasbora caudimaculata the colors are reversed.

    This is a native fish here in Thailand, someone else caught it, but they are very popular as a food item. I am hoping to breed some, but I was trying to narrow down what it was so I could ask better questions. In Thai they call it Bla siew

    Siew is a kind of rasbora.
    Pla siew Kwai is the silver rasbora, for instance, and pla siew kang Kwan
    Is nothing less than the popular espeis rasbora.
