L047 hikari danio and gold gourami

The Hikari danio is a new species of danio recently discovered in Burma, and first exported in 2002/2003. It is still awaiting a scientific name, and is temporarily referred to as Danio sp. "Hikari". It has blue and yellow varieties with the yellow being male and the blue female. It appears to be closely related to Danio kerri. It may be a subspecies of this fish, but this does not seem to be the case.
