Fish - Rasbora - Boraras Merah

Classification
Order: Cypriniformes Family: Cyprinidae
Distribution
Appears endemic to southern Borneo. The type specimens were collected from the Jelai Bila river basin at Nataik Sedawak, presumably a settlement of some kind, near the town of Sukamara in the Indonesian province of Kalimantan Tengah (Central Kalimantan).
The full type locality is ‘Sungei Jelai Bila basin, 2°41′S, 111°13′E, Nataik Sedawak, about 30 kilometers south of Sukamara, Kalimantan Tengah, Borneo’.
Its range extends westwards from the Jelai Bila watershed whereas that of the congener B. brigittae, with which it may occur sympatrically there (see ‘Notes’), extends east.
Habitat
Inhabits black water streams and rivers associated with ancient forest peat swamps. The water is stained brown due to the release of tannins and other chemicals released by decomposing organic matter and the substrate scattered with fallen leaves, twigs and branches.
Such environments characteristically contain very soft (negligible hardness), acidic (pH as low as 4.0) water and are often dimly-lit due to the forest canopy above. These biotopes are under serious threat across much of Southeast Asia from rubber/palm oil plantations, building developments and other human activities.
Maximum Standard Length
15 – 20 mm.
Aquarium Size
Though small it still needs space to swim and dominant males will form temporary territories when spawning so a group is best kept in a tank with base dimensions of at least 45 ∗ 30 cm.
