RE: Puntius Deniisoni


Some authors put them in the genus Crossicheilus, which would make them
related to the SAE. They are big, Much bigger than a neon!!!) beautiful,
active and as you found out; expensive! The ones available locally retail
for $40 each. Great fish!

Subject: Puntius Deniisoni

I recently received a pair of breath taking fish called
Puntius Deniisoni from a friend. These fish are native
to the south western coast of India. A bit rare and rather
expensive by our standards.

The first thing I noticed is that these fish attacked the
beard algae with vengence! I am looking forward to them
clearing up my tanks.

Here are some pictures (Neons tetras eat your heart out)


The name may be incorrect, any information or experiences
with beard algae and them is welcome.
