    These are some of my favorite fish for planted tanks

    1. Harlequin Rasbora - Trigonostigma heteromorpha


    2. Espei Rasbora - Trigonostigma espei



    3. Hengeli Rasbora - Trigonostigma hengeli


    I started with Harlequin, then espei and now I prefer the hengeli which I feel has just the right amount of colour to stand out yet not compete with the plant scape.

    if you ever find the Trigonostigma somphongsi, buy everything!
    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    Found a pic of the somphongsi here:



    Image from www.rasbora.de

    It is a very rarely seen species in the hobby and is supposed to be a bycatch with some other "harlequin"-type rasboras. As you can see, this is very similar to Trigo. hengeli.

    I found this one only:

    apparently the black stripe lacks the triangular ending that is typical of the other 3 species in the genus.

    Francesco, that's the link to the same image I've shown in my post. Yes indeed it does not have the tell-tale triangular marking like the other 3 Trigonostigma species.

    Jianyang,

    ouch .
    for some reason your post did not appear when I read the topic, even though the time says you wrote it an hour earlier. that's what you get for registering in a forum on the other side of the planet .

    BTW, I am told that a very detailed description of the species along with good pictures can be found in Rudiger Riehl and Hans A. Baensch's Aquarium Atlas, vol. 3. thought you'd like to know.
