Yes, but i can't identify it clearly. Maybe it is Danio aequipinnatus ,from Yunnan Province.

Thank you so much for sharing your amazing fish with us. Many I have never seen before. They are beautiful and interesting. Could you tell us which ones you have collected? Please continue posting for us.

Odyssey in Japan also posts local fish and they are incredible. A real treat for us to see.

I am in Florida (USA) and the next time I go collecting I will try to take pictures so I can share some of our wild fish with you. We have no loaches. :( But we do have some nice darters and killies. And because many local fish farms are nearby, the farms flood when we have bad storms and our rivers have lots of non-native fish. Not good for the environment, but we do find some interesting fish.

I have two Cyprinella lutrensis in my tank , their wonderful American fish! We call them Rianbow elf.And darters are incredible, strange and seductive fishes.

You said you wanna know what fishes are collected by myself. Some are collected, for example, Rhodeus atremius suigensis,Sinibrama macrops ,Cobitis sinensis ,Rhodeus ocellatus ,Rhodeus sinensis ,these are fishes in my hometown.
And some other fishes are bought in agricultural market, like Sarcocheilichthys sinensis sinensis are found in our local market. But Sarcocheilichys parvus,Leptobotia pellegrini ,Microphysogobio tafangensis,Acrossocheilus labiatus,Opsariichthys evolans are bought in a town market in ZheJiang Province.
And rest are brought from fish shop or internet or given by friends, but they all our Chinese local fishes,i'm sure.

Continuing to share my fishes with you,
Botia superciliaris, are given by friend from SiChuan Province, what a beautiful fish. the pic shows frightened condition when it was caught, so its colour faded. It's very nice when it shows normal colour in gold alternating with black stripes.

Opsariichthys evolans, this fish is delicate i think, easy to get hurt and die. I brought 6 adult come home but just 3 exist. Then one died the secone day because of wound... :(
It's too fast, I can't take his pics clearly ...sorry
