These fish came into BAS of Bolton in 2007, i don't know a lot about them so if any of the lads or lasses know anymore about them i'd be very intrested in hearing, i'll try to find where they were caught at BAS as they could be just another location form.
here's a pic of a pair and another of a group, at times the red is very strong on the base of the tail ( peduncle) the eye is emerald green with a flash just under the eye.
typical small rasbora behavior and very hardy.

Who, me? /ph34r.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":ph34r:" border="0" alt="ph34r.gif" /> Very nice Mick, must confess I'd never even heard about this form until you mentioned it last night. There's a brief mention of dorsiocellata with a "russet body colour" in this article but it's all I could find. Do the males show more red than the females?

Cake or death?

thats a good read bud, now if BAS can confirm the area they are probably the same fish.
the males are slightly more coloured than the females, but they can change their hue in seconds depending on their mood.
i bought 20 initially but a few were weak and died leaving me with 16 healthy fish,
soon i'll try and get them to breed. i know the basics on breeding these Rasbora ie they scatter their eggs so hopefully it should be fairly straight foreward. ( famous last words)
