Epalzeorhynchus kallopterus (Flying Fox)
Often confused with the Siamese algae eater. On the flying fox, the band running along the body is dark black and their is a golden stripe just above it. On the Siamese algae eater this stripe is less strongly coloured and there is no gold stripe above it. In addition, the black band on the flying fox runs onto the tail fin, whereas on the Siamese algae eater the band fades away on the tail.
