Rasbora einthovenii
Blue Line Rasbora
Rasbora einthovenii, commonly known as Brilliant Rasbora, is an Asian freshwater species found in the Malay Peninsula and Indonesia, mostly in forest streams. Rasbora einthovenii can reach a maximum length of around 9 cm. Males are smaller and slimmer than the females, who have a deeper body shape in comparison. This species is similar to Rasbora jacobsoni but lacks its dark reticulated scales above the lateral stripe. The Brilliant Rasbora’s stripe is more uneven than in any other species of Rasbora; this species’ body also has a pink background colour and a lateral stripe that extends through and beyond its eye. Rasbora einthovenii can live for 3 – 5 years
