Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Chela cachius, a Danionin known as the Neon Hatchet Fish, is one of the plainest members of the Chela genus and is rarely kept by aquarists. Its name comes from the colours that reflect off it in sunlight, but out of the glare of the sun it is a plain silver fish. Barbels are not present. Endemic in South Asia, it is found in Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Myanmar. Like most Danionins, this fish has a tendency to jump. A tight fitting lid with no gaps is recommended for keeping them captive.Research in 2001 by Fang Fang suggests that the genus Chela is closely related to the Devarios.
