I have been searching for the name of this fish with no luck. Does anyone know what it is?
It is Giant Danio Size. It has a gold metalic body with a number of blue vertical bars. I am quite sure it is Asian. I cannot find a picture of it anywhere.

I do believe it is a Zacco species. The bars are a lot more uniform. Do you know of any links to sites that show other species within the Zacco genus?

I found it. It is a Barilius species, possibly bakeri. They are also known as hill trout and are found in India.

I work for an Aquarium Service Company and we have some in one of our clients tanks. They are very cool fish. I am trying to talk someone into letting me "barrow" a male and female to see if I can breed them.
