I recently bought 7 of these guys from my local fish store (Just Fish) in Lexington, KY. though they called them "Narrow Wedge Rasbora." 6 of them look just like the photo, 1 has the orange strip completely around the black all the way to the tail, top and bottem. It is much smaller than the others. Great little guys to watch. I love them. Joe

According to www.FishBase.org the correct scientific name for Hengel's Rasbora is actually [I][B]Trigonostigma hengeli[/B][/I].

These guys are the most active in my fish tank. They do school, and love to swim at the top part of my tank. The pristella tetras school in the middle, and my glowlight tetras love the middle and bottom. These rasboras fit well in my community. If I had more room, I'd get more.

I've also seen these fish sold as "Pork Chop Rasbora," because their black marking looks like a little pork chop! Very cool fish.
