My LFS received a shipment of Puntius denisonii a short while back ("Red-line Torpedo Fish"). I'm just amazed at how colorful they are! Pics on the Net simply do not do them justice.

It looks just like someone took a day glow pink highlighter to them. I was under the impression that the red on this fish would be like the Rummy-nose Tetra. Not so. These make the red on the Rummy-nose look absolutely pale! Besides the Cardinal Tetra, I don't know of a FW fish that can compare for color. Amazing stuff!

Sorry, I know this isn't loach related, but I just had to share. :-)
