Epalzeorhynchus kallopterus
 

Epalzeorhynchus kallopterus

Tranquil enough - even timid - except with its own species, the flying fox is a bottom-feeder. It has not yet been successfully bred in the aquarium. A closely related species, E. siamensis or Siamese flying fox, has the reputation of keeping down green algae which can sometimes proliferate; it is distinguishable from E. kallopterus by the longitudinal black band running along the middle of the body only as far as the caudal fin. Size: 10-15 cm.
