Devario apogon

Devario apogon Chu 1981
Scientific Name:Devario apogon
Origin:Yunnan province of China. Irrawaddy drainage
Size:Largest specimen recorded by Chu was 51mm. I would expect tank raised fish to probably get to 55 or 60mm S.L.
Comments:This species is probably best kept at lower temperatures: 20°C rather than 25°C.
It can be distinguished from other species by the narrow indistinct vertical bars on the sides followed by a wide indistinct tapering horizontal stripe to the end of the caudal peduncle. This species does not have barbels.
Rarely seen outside of Yunnan.
