Rasbora trilineata, commonly known as Three-lined Rasbora, is a popular Asian freshwater species found in the Malay Peninsula, Borneo and Sumatra, as well as the Chao Phraya and Mekong basins. It is generally found in slow-flowing rivers, lakes, swamps and forest habitats. .Rasbora trilineata can reach a maximum length of around 13 cm. This slim, elongated species has a dark lateral stripe that runs down its body from the pectoral fins to the caudal peduncle. It has a sharply forked caudal fin, which is the reason it is sometimes called the Scissortail Rasbora. Its fins are translucent except for the caudal fin, which has some black and yellow bands and white tips.
