    Default LF: Flying Fox (Epalzeorhynchos Kalopterus)

    Looking for flying fox Epalzeorhynchos Kalopterus
    epalzeorhynchos-kalopterus-01.jpg
    The black line goes all the way to the tail, they develop black coloration on their fins with a white tip and they do not have a sucker mouth.

    Please let me know if you have seen true flying foxes for sale.


    I have only found these species or been told there's flying foxes somewhere to only find these ones.

    Garra Taeniata or Garra cambodgiensis

    Sometimes labled flying fox also known as false flying fox.
    The line does not go to the end of the tail and they don't get black fins like the true flying fox and you can tell its a garra from the suction mouth similar to a carp or goldfish kind of mouth.

    Crossocheilus reticulatus

    Sometimes labled flying fox has silver body with black spot near tail.

    Siamese algae eater

    Chinese Algae Eater

    Has sucker mouth sometimes people think they are Siamese algae eater.

    I only want the true flying fox Epalzeorhynchos kalopterus.

    before I use to get them at fantasy aquatics but they have since closed,
    I have sometimes seen them for sale on BC aquaria ,
    and there was a fish auction about a month or so ago for the closing of fantasy aquatics and there was quite a bit of them there.
    you should make a post on here looking for Crossocheilus reticulatus, I'm sure some people will have them

    I do, but i need it to be 2.5 to 3 inches(or bigger). it's going into my 125 gallon Cichlid tank.
    how much would you like for it?

    sorry wishX didn't mean to hijack your thread.

    It's approx. 2.5 inches and I have it my 65 gal. $15.00 would do.
    However, if you have aggressive fish in that tank the bigger ones are also aggressive.

    Not a great picture, however WishX is this the one you are looking for?

    I saw it in the pet culture on no3 road Richmond Friday June 12. I think the price is 2/5.
