    nice fishes! I think they can be found in Singapore too, swimming with the bigger barbs.

    But, kinda a little too big for tanks below 4ft.

    The last picture is taken in a photo tank? Very colorful specimens.

    Rasbora elegans is another spotty rasbora... gets to about 15 cm. I think its distribution is Malaya and Sumatra though. You often see it together with Rasbora einthovenii (which seems to imply that they occupy different ecological niches in the same habitat). And unlike R. kalochroma and R. kottelati, elegans is a predominantly clearwater fish.

    what I meant is lorba probably seen elegans in Singapore instead of kalochroma/kottelati.

    That rasbora's head and body shape really look like tubbi.

    That's because you haven't seen a school of them in top form With a deep glowing red, and spots that seem multi-coloured. Personally I will take a batch of any rasbora over any tetra any day.

    Choy, I must warn you that your remark constitutes prejudiced, biased and inflammatory provocation of the inviolable ignorance treasured by a good number of self-respecting, self-deluded netizens, in a most economical choice of words...... good job!!!! couldn't have done better!

    A rare beauty from the land of headhunters, in transit to a suitor's abode, finds demise in the holding house of a Hunter living in the remains of a big swamp..... a most intriguing case indeed.... let's round up the suspects!!

    Yes, it can be a sensitive 'label' (although i see the tourism board using the term in their promotion advertisements). But let's keep this thread firmly on the kottelati and other fishy stuff .....
