This might prove to be a tricky one. I know the name this species goes under in the aquarium trade, but in one research publication I found, a very different looking fish is associated with the name. I might try to track down the original description to see if I can make sense of it.

Turns out I don't have access to the original description, but I think I've sorted it out anyway. There are two species involved, which for a while were regarded as the same thing. The research paper I found had the other species (D. quagga), in which the body is mostly striped rather than spotted. (I hope I'm not letting to much out of the bag ... but at least I haven't mentioned the genus name, just the first letter.)

I was just reading over Kullander's paper on D. kyathit and he has/is apparently studying quagga also but I can't find that paper. Which is a little disappointing I would like to know more about that species.

If you are ever trying to track down original descriptions of fish species, this site is the best. In some cases it will even link you to electronic copies of the descriptions. CAS - Catalog of Fishes:
