hi, I'd say that that was a cummings barb, barbus cummingi.

Anyway, I've had a lot of pleasure looking through all the pictures at Siamensis.org and I highly recommend people do the same. Almost every thread houses stunning pictures. I do think I've exhausted my resources, so this might be all I can come up with.

Interesting that none of these pics have the nice sandy bottom some of us think they would have.

I don't have a clue but I name it "evil loach from hell". :shock: Is this one related to loaches?

Beautiful eel!
38 tanks, 2 ponds over 4000 liters of water to keep clean and fresh.

Happy fish keeping!
