The Thai Mahseer is a stunning member of the cyprinidae family of fish. They display a stunning metallic gold shine on the scales. It is one of the most colorful species of Mahseer. Mahseers inhabit both rivers and lakes, ascending to rapid streams with rocky bottoms for breeding. Like other types of carps, they are omnivorous, eating not only algae, crustaceans, insects, frogs, and other fish, but also fruits that fall from trees overhead. They are very easy to care for and readily accepts pellet foods.
