    fish that stands like a tripod

    7 years ago when there was a freshwater fish shop on the second floor in the HDB flat n Chinatown, the owner would bring in rare and exotic fishes. I remembered seeing one that I never saw again. He claims he got it from Thailand and the unusual thing about the fish was that it stood on its pelvic and anal fin much like a tripod. It had a sandy colour to it and it was about 5cm in length.

    Does anyone here know what species is this?

    Could be Yunnanilus Brevis (Inle Loach) or Petruichthys sp. 'rosy' (Rosy Loach), or similar species... those types of fishes also exhibit the standing on pelvic and anal fin stance.

    No, it is a little squat in shape, like a rasbora with slightly largish eyes. The "stilts" on the pelvic and anal fin were very prominent.
