We conducted fish sampling at 90 sites in the East Tiaoxi River, Yangtze River basin, China. Seventy-seven species belonging to 19 families were recorded, and photographs of live specimens are provided for all species. Three exotic species were recorded: Cirrhinus cirrhosus, C. molitorella, Gambusia affinis. The top 3 species-rich families were Cyprinidae (46 %), Cobitidae (5 %) and Gobiidae (5 %). The species composition in the East Tiaoxi River is similar to that of the Yangtze River Basin; however, the East Tiaoxi River has quite a diverse fish fauna for a small river system.
