Toxotes blythii (Burmese Archerfish, Blyth's Archerfish)
Similar to other archers, being silvery with darker regions towards the back, particularly on the dorsal and anal fins. Irregular dark bands run horizontally along the flanks from behind the eye to the base of the tail.
This species has not been imported (at least not deliberately) but is known to be a freshwater, not brackish water, fish.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
Archerfish need to be kept either singly or in large groups (at least 6 specimens) otherwise larger specimens tend to bully smaller ones. They are completely peaceful towards fish too big to be eaten, and should only be combined with docile tankmates.

|Size||Unknown for certain, but at least 15 cm can be expected|
