The two morphs of Danio kyathit

A smallish cyprinoid with a maximum length of 6 centimetres (2.4 in), the females are thicker and less streamlined in the body than males. The two recognised colour morphs are a striped form known as the orange-finned danio, and a spotted form known by the common name ocelot danio, which may be confused with the leopard danio. Individual fish may show variations in markings intermediate to the spotted and striped forms.
