Chilatherina fasciata "Pagai Village"

The Chilatherina genus holds about a dozen (new fish are still discovered and described every year) of rainbowfish that inhabit New Guinea. They are not found in Australia.

Hi,
EDIT:: about 100 fry, stopped counting :dunno:

Wow thats very nice. I added a mobb into my Chilatherina fasciata spezies tank a few days ago and hope to get some offspring soon.

Here are some pictures of the same male. On the first picture "in his normale coloration" and in displaying mood on the second pic. I also recorded a short video to show both sexes.

Just wanted to update as well.

I have had these fish for a few years now and they keep amaze me.

I made 2 short videos showing the difference in color between morning and afternoon

In the morning video I couldn´t prevent lots of reflections, but if you can look past those, you see the males in a very dark grey/green with something close to wine red in the tail area.

In the afternoon video they show a brighter more yellow´ish appearance.

Morning hours:

Afternoon:

Another update, I am currently working on a bigger tank for the Chilatherina. This 4´ tank at about 55 gallons really became a bit small, so now they will get a 6´ 100 gallon tank all for themselves. I wish to keep 7 males and 8 females in that tank and leave it at that.

At the time I made this photo, back in June 2011 I think it was I was already impressed by the almost 5" size and the deep bodied males. They added about a full 1" in TL and about half that in height. Guess there´s nothing to it but take a weekends time and make new photo´again

It's not Pagwi, no where near that, that is in Papua, New Guinea, not Papua, formerly Irian Jaya. It's in the village of Pagai. Note that I put photos up in this post of "Mamberamo" fasciata. They do look similar to photos I remember from Neil, the Mamberamo photos not the Pagai photos. These are pretty different than any of the other ones in the hobby, most similar to Faowi village but if you ever have both you will easily recognize the adults and their locations. Mamby pambies :-) never looked like these!

Again this fish is not called fasciata from Pagai River, it is C. fasciata - Pagai which refers to the village. Please stop referring to it incorrectly.

I recently located a variety of C fasciata and would like a confirmed ID. The fish comes from a reliable source but even they were not too confident on a positive ID on this particular variety. I was told that this fish is Faowi Village, it is 10-11cm and the picture shows his everyday coloration that intensifies when he is on. I have checked out all the photos in this thread and others online but I honestly cant tell if it looks more like Faowi or Pagai. Any help would be greatly appreciated. download/file.php?mode=view&id=837
