Ricefish

The Ricefish are a family (Adrianichthyidae) of small ray-finned fish that are found in fresh and brackish waters from India to Japan and out into the Indo-Australian Archipelago, most notably Sulawesi. There are about 27 species, some extremely rare and endangered, and some 2-4 may already be extinct.

Most of these species are quite small, with maximum lengths in the 0.79-1.57 in (2-4 cm) range, making them of interest for aquaria.

Several species carry their eggs attached to the body between their pelvic fins.
