    It´s a cracking-looking fish.

    Very pretty whatever they are mate. Can the different Sinibotia not be distinguished by fin ray counts etc. then?

    They more than likely can Matt but its finding the info in the first place that is hard, the problem comes from the fact that S. pulchra, S. superciliaris and S. longiventralis all look very similar and it will probably come down to some sort of count to be 100% certain, the only other problem is from the pictures I have seen of all these species the ray counts of the dorsal are all the same

    The main trigger was the water level rising significantly after heavy rainfall.

    Could that be simulated by a significant increase in flow and a drop in temperature I wonder?
