Yunnanilus brevis

17. July 2007

They behave like barbs, scientifically however they belong to the loaches. Completely contrary to the bottom-oriented way of life of their relatives they populate the free water range as swarm fishes. Their homeland is Burma, where they live in slowly flowing waters and the boundary region of lakes. With a length of approximately 6 cm they find place in each aquarium and can fascinate the interested hobbyist by their atypical “loach behavior”. (Photo F. Schäfer, Text K. Diehl)
