Hi all, just joined the forum from the UK. Very interested in native Indian fishes, notably recently I purchased (after a very long search) 5 x Dawkinsia Assimilis, Red. These guys are wild caught and imported to the UK from India. They are currently approx 5cm in length but so far have not shown the fantastic colours that I expected. Wondered if any of you guys had experience with this species and could advise at what sort of size I might expect some colouration to appear.
There has certainly been a lot of misidentification surrounding this sub species of Mascara Barb, sometimes referred as Puntius Assimilis and often confused with Dawkinsia Fillimentos. It would certainly help to have a positive ID - any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
I will try to upload some photos but I dont have an SLR camera and these guys are pretty fast.....!!
