Species diversity and distribution pattern of freshwater fishes from Nakhon Nayok Province, acid soil area in upstream of Bangpakong River, east of Thailand, were investigated in relation to environmental conditions between September-October 2012. The freshwater fishes samples and environmental factors were collected monthly, at 3 sampling stations. A total of 23 species, 8 families and 4 orders of freshwater fishes were recorded, of which 11 species of family Cyprinidae were the most diverse group. The predominant fishes in this area included Rasbora spp., Boraras sp., Esomus metallicus, Amblypharyngodon chulabornae, Pristolepis fasciata and Trichopsis spp.
