Rasbora pauciperforata
Red Line Rasbora
Rasbora pauciperforata, commonly known as Red-striped Rasbora, is an Asian freshwater species found in Sumatra, Borneo, Singapore, and in the Malay Peninsula. It tends to inhabit black water streams and forest peat swamps filled with fallen leaves, branches and twigs. Rasbora pauciperforata can reach a maximum length of around 7 cm. It is an elongated, slender fish with an incomplete lateral line and a dorsal fin height that is greater than the depth of its body. The lateral line can vary in colour from orange to golden depending on locality, condition, diet and mood. Mature females are larger and generally more round-bellied than males.
