Discherodontis lhalei ,often refered to as Puntius somphongsi ,I remember reading about them in an old book ,it claimed they were the rarest Thai freshwater fish ,I think this has been well disputed since /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> though I dreamed about owning some it was years until I actually came across them ,they are a pleasure to keep very undemanding so long as a genral basic water requirments are met .

Thanks Colin , I have Steve [thedarkone] to thank he alerted me and picked them up for me , they've grown well , and are quite hardy and don't seem to be as delicate as D.ashmeadi in the handling [netting] although they are fine too once they are acclimatised

Ashmeadi seem to die if they loose scales during netting /wacko.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":wacko:" border="0" alt="wacko.gif" /> so its best to coaxe them into a net rather than chese them /thumbs_up.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumbsup:" border="0" alt="thumbs_up.gif" />

Another beautiful species and another round of pic-resizing. /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />

Cake or death?
