Devario pathirana

6. July 2007


We received this endemic kind, which was only specified in the late 1980s, from Sri Lanka. Devario (formerly: Danio) pathirana exclusively occurs in a small area in Sri Lanka. Their final size is 8cm, they are easy to keep and their breeding is no problem either. This species is as demanding as the far better-known Devario malabaricus. They are quite suitable for a community tank, but require free room to swim. (Photo F. Schäfer, Text K. Diehl)
