Hi.  Can anyone ID this danio? Wild caught in Chiang Mai province, Thailand.

edit: apparently I can't include pictures in this post since I don't have ten posts yet. Is there any way around this rather than spamming up the forum with 8 junk posts?

 Looks closest to Devario xyrops,  but that species is described as limited to a few streams in  Myanmar and has 7 dorsal fin rays. This fish has 8.

Also resembles Celestichthys flagrans but that species is also described as inhabiting Myanmar and it has a p+1 stripe below dorsal fin that this fish lacks.

Devario interruptus looks similar and is described as having 7-8 dorsal fin rays, but is app limited to China.

Any ideas? Thanks.

I think it is one of these two: Devario apogon http://www.seriouslyfish.com/species/devario-apogon/ or Celestichthys flagrans aka Northern glowlight http://www.seriouslyfish.com/species/celestichthys-flagrans/ I could be wrong, of course.

I am not sure which of the three options is correct. However, the fish in the picture looks to be 6 cm TL and about 6 CM TL and % cm SL.
According to Seriously fish here are the lengths of the three fish listed:
Devario maetaengensis 4.5 - 5 cm
Devario apogon 4 - 4.6 cm
Celestichthys flagrans 2..5 - 3.5

So I think I was likely off on the flagrans- but between the other two I am not sure. I would only note that the apogon has an orange background color while the pic of the maetaengensis shows a more blue coloration. However, colors can change under stress or be different based on sex, so I cannot be certain. I am happy to defer to Dennis as he has clearly kept many more species than I have, My danio keeping experience is limited to 3 or 4 species.

But lets keep this fun, is it possible we have both been wrong and the fish is actually 'Inlecypris' shanensis? http://www.seriouslyfish.com/species/inlecyprisshanensis/
