Espe’s Rasbora
(Trigonostigma espei)

Common names:
Espe’s rasbora, False harlequin rasbora, Lambchop rasbora, SlI'm harlequin, Narrow-wedge harlequin.

Size: 2.5-4cm

pH: 5.0 – 7.0

Tempº: 23ºC - 28ºC

Tank region: Middle layer.

Origin: Thailand, Cambodia.

Gender: Unknown. It is rumored that males are more colorful and females are plumper, but this is definitely not a certain means of distinguishing the sexes of this fish.

Notes: These popular rasboras look a lot like the slightly larger Harlequin Rasbora, having a bit more red on the body. They enjoy a planted tank and as with all rasboras require a school of at least 5-6 individuals.

It is important to have a tight cover as they are magnificent jumpers and often jump if they sense danger, or are excited. They are omnivores and easily fed on a diet based around good-quality flake food, although small food is preferred because of their small mouths.
