Order : Cypriniformes
Family : CYPRINIDAE
Species : Barbodes sealei
Maximum Length : 14 cm

The Bornean Spotted Barb inhabits clear, unpolluted forest streams : it tends to congregate in slightly deeper pools. This species is endemic to Borneo.

It is identified by the presence of a row of equally spaced dark blotches along the flank. Additional dark spots may occur at the base of the dorsal and anal fins. This typical patterning is generally present in smaller specimens as well as full-grown adults. It reaches a maximum size of around 14 cm.

The images shown here were taken at Danum Valley, Sabah, northeast Borneo. The species ranges into other parts of Borneo, including Kalimantan in the south.
