General Body Form:
The Burmese Border Loach has the classic loach shape. The belly area is fairly straight and the back curves in a convex shape. The mouth has four pairs of barbels. As with most of the family the spine reaches to just below the eye
The Burmese Border Loach has very unique coloration. In the young there are three black stripes and five black bars that seem to leave four pairs of yellow blotches. When the fish matures the bars and stripes widen and the yellow blotches become more slender. Rows of small yellow dots appear in the stripes and blotches of the fish
