This image popped up on on another thread and I really like the fish but not sure what they are exactly (steven chong scape). Any ideas? Thanks

Inlecypris auropupurea/Devario auropurpureus doesn't have the horizontal stripe on the caudal peduncle ('p-stripe').

This is Steven Chong, fish in his IAPLC 2019 Rank 15th layout Amano-Gawa were juvenile
Barilius bakeri
(he’d wanted to use a local Japanese fish but was convinced otherwise by the TAU)

Thanks everyone. I initially thought barilius but convinced myself they were too slender, and didn't really have any other ideas.

I don’t think these are Barilius (either - same too slender conclusion), but I suspect Steve Chong travelled a similar path in choosing the fish

Now that Undying is posted on Steve Scapes (FB page), I suspect he would answer the question :)
