Puntius everetti
Clown Barb
Puntius everetti, commonly known as Clown Barb, is an Asian freshwater species found in Borneo and Sumatra. It is distributed through clear, slow-moving waters, in forest streams, in quiet shore areas and mostly in shallow waters. Puntius everetti can reach a maximum length of 15 cm. This handsome species has a red-gold sheen, red fins and spotted bands, giving it its “clownish” appearance. It may have some red in its irises. Males are slimmer and more brightly coloured; females will get a plumper belly when spawning. The Clown Barb can live from 5 – 8 years.
