Devario pathirana

Common Name:Barred Danio
Scientific Name:Devario pathirana
Origin:Sri Lanka. Now reported to be critically endangered in the wild and on the "red list".
Size:80mm (3ΒΌ inches). S.L.
Comments:Is probably the most aggressive of all Danionins. Having said that, it is only boisterous but can be a bit of a "fin nipper". Probably first bred in the UK by Chris Cheswright in 1994 or 1995. Freely available from captive bred sources.
