Yeah these have made it to the UK, I remember seeing a couple of adult fish and a few juveniles a few years ago in a shipment of fish that came in to Manchester airport at the same time as a mate of mines shipment.
The juveniles had a gold line running the length of the body with a feint black line below, the adults had lost the lines and had red colouration to the fins and the red spot on the back side of the eye is very visible almost iridescent.
I remember them because i commented at the time that they almost had a bone fish/snook type mouth/face and they have absolute buckets for mouths. The juvie's were around 3" and the adult fish around 13" and still looked like they had some growing to do.

Always worth adding Matt /thumbs_up.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumbsup:" border="0" alt="thumbs_up.gif" /> I think BAS has had either 1 or 2 ? they are quite nice due to elongate shape ! I must admit I didnt see them until they had stopped selling and placed in show tank watched them for a while and they seemed ok behaviour wise , mind their show tanks are quite a size 8x4x4 ft I did enquire at the time and Andy Taylor said they seemed pretty docile ?
I think off the top of my head they are a Thai fish , but are similar in shape to a group of barbs that originate from China , which I think are called Hennibarbus ? I'm pretty sure their name begins with H anyway !
Neil from Pier Aquatics knows about a barb from Laos that is similar in shape with that long snout , the name escapes me ?
