Additional Comments

Called the Crazy Fish because it often swims upside down or at some weird angle. Also called Crimson-tipped Gudgeon (adults develop red edged fins.) Being commonly found in the lower reaches of rivers and in estuaries, Crazy Fish benefit from additional salt in their tank (eg 5-10% seawater).
