    Hi Matt, personally I’d rule out Siamensis as it looks too chunky ?

    I dare not question your authority on random silvery fishes Andy.

    Okay so are we going with H.Lobatus or is it possibly somthing else?

    I’d prefer to say going with Henicorhynchus sp/ possibly H.lobatus ?

    Well I’m still not 100% on that….I’ve been talking to some other guys and they are leaning hard towards Labeo sp. Or possibly somthing else flying for related. I’ve also been suggested its could be a Darkline shark(Google it).

    Hi sharkdude considering Andy nailed the genus and possibly the species at the first attempt, and hasn’t changed his mind since, I wouldn’t doubt his id.

    Don’t find anything relevant on Google for ‘darkline shark’? Do you have a scientific name?

    A link to the Darkline shark.

    The only reason I doubt it is because I posted his answer on my other forum and one of our most educated members disagrees. He is very credible when identifying fish as I’m sure Andy is. He pretty much specializes in rare and uncommon fish. That being said, his reasoning is because the fish in question doesn’t have any color in the fins and the one Andy said has reddish fins and is a lot stalkier than the fish in question.

    Hi Sharkdude , according to one description H. lobotus has pale yellow fins ,the dorsal and anal fins have a red or pink distal margin !

    I’m not absolutely certain its Lobotus but am reasonably confident its Henicorhynchus !

    We could do with Nonn or Kamphol

    Also the fish in the original photos are clearly juvenile-to-sub-adult and therefore I wouldn’t have thought fin colour would be much use as an identifying character?

    For the Darkline this link is all I could find. These also have small faint spots, one on the caudal and one around the middle. They seem to go away when stressed.

    No i did not. Do you know anything about them…I think these may be what I’ve been trying to ID this whole time….
