    I came to know what species are these? I have 2 and Sorry no pics of them but i know the fish colours, it have long black line in the middle like Slender Shine fish (see pics from my book below, if u search on google they will not find it ) and has scissor tail like Scissor Tail Rasbora, they are pretty fast but peaceful and love to chase.

    I think it's a Flying Fox, the false Siamese Algae Eater.

    Pic in the op is not a Denison's barb

    Think it is, but totally off-color

    It's definitely a shark, but not a Denison barb (roseline shark). It's either a Flying Fox or Siamese Algae Eater and I know for a fact its not a SAE.

    Maybe some type of larger rasbora? hampalong may know.

    Trouble is, none of the fish mentioned so far are found in Korea (assuming it's from Korea). Can anyone translate the book's text?

    It's some kind of Barb, probably.
  12. Anders247Fishlore LegendMember

    I think it's in Indonesian.
  13. hampalongWell Known MemberMember

    It contains the word "Korea" several times?
  14. Anders247Fishlore LegendMember

    Maybe that's where the fish is from, and the book's language is Indonesian.
    After looking at it the ones in the book are different from the ones in the pic.
    I would say the ones in the pic are denison barbs. They need a group of 6+. @hampalong, I've seen varied opinions on their min tank size, is 48 length by 18 width (a 75 US g) enough for them?
  15. hampalongWell Known MemberMember

    Yes, the picture is denisonii, the book isn't.

    Barely big enough. They grow to 6", are very active, and live in groups so I would prefer something a bit bigger, but yes you could do it in a 4 x 18.
