The flying fox (Epalzeorhynchos kalopterus) is a popular freshwater community-aquarium fish that belongs to the Cyprinidae family. It is known to eat green algae. It is also known as kuonobarbi in the aquarium trade and is sometimes mistakenly referred to as the Siamese Algae Eater. The flying fox fish has a characteristic long body with a flat abdominal area. Its dorsal area has a coloration ranging from olive to dark brown. The lower half of its body has a yellowish white hue. A brownish-black line is apparent from its mouth, eye and the caudal fins. On top of this brownish-black line is a gold-colored stripe. The eyes of a flying fox may have a reddish iris. Its dorsal, anal and ventral finnage comprise of a black band and a white edge.
 The flying fox is a bottom-dweller that thrives in fast-flowing foothill rivers and streams of Borneo, Java and Sumatra in Indonesia of Southeast Asia. They are also found in Thailand

飞狐是这一类中体色较鲜艳的,所以在美国比“暹罗食藻鱼”或“假暹罗食藻鱼”还受欢迎。产自泰国、苏门答腊、婆罗洲等地的流动水域。在芬兰批发商常以“新加坡食藻鱼”的名称贩卖,有时也被叫做“Trunk Barb”。

说明:躯体跟鳍的形态跟上述两种相似,细长个体的图片常出现在水族书籍杂志上,整体为暖棕色或均匀的金色,像暹罗食藻鱼一样,也有一黑条纹由鼻端延伸到尾鳍分叉处,但在到尾鳍尽头时更黑更宽。横黑条纹上头有一窄金色带。背鳍、臀鳍跟腹鳍有不很清楚的暗色带跟亮白色的尖端。有两对触须,体长可达12cm,无已知性征。

习性:与上述两种相似,成鱼领域性会攻击同种类。

与其它鱼相处:飞狐可养在任何混养缸中,但因其有领域性可能会追逐其它鱼,一缸中不应养多于一只飞狐。
