Copper Harlequin
(Trigonostigma hengeli)

Classification
Order: Cypriniformes Family: Cyprinidae

Distribution
Certainly restricted to the Greater Sunda Islands although the exact extent of its range is unclear.

Collections have occured in Jambi province, Sumatra and apparently the Indonesian province of West Kalimantan (Kalimantan Barat), Borneo though we have been unable to obtain any definitive information regarding the latter. The type specimens were collected from the Tambesi river, a tributary of the Batang Hari/Jambi river in Sumatra.

Habitat
Mostly inhabits gently flowing sections of forest streams and tributaries where submerged aquatic plants such as Cryptocoryne species grow thickly.

The water is sometimes stained faintly brown/yellow due to the presence of tannins and other chemicals released by decomposing organic matter and the substrate scattered with fallen leaves, twigs, and branches. Such environments characteristically contain soft, weakly acidic to neutral water and are often dimly-lit due to dense marginal vegetation and the forest canopy above.

Maximum Standard Length
25 – 30 mm.

Aquarium Size
Aquarium base dimensions of 60 * 30 cm or equivalent should be the smallest considered since this species should be maintained in numbers.
