Red-Tailed Rasbora
(Rasbora Borapetensis)

Size: 5-6cm

pH: 6.0 – 7.0

Tempº: 22ºC - 26ºC

Tank region: Middle-Top layer

Origin: Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia.

Gender: It is only possible to tell the gender when females have eggs.

Notes: These rasboras can be somewhat difficult to locate in local shops – but the reward of finding them is worth it. They are fairly hardy, active, peaceful, cheap, (despite being fairly unusual) pretty and sparks interest with other aquarists who may not have seen them before.

As with all rasboras, they enjoy the company of at least 5 fish of their own species. They enjoy playing in currents - and also enjoy plant cover; making a planted tank ideal for these creatures. They are any to feed, and will take pretty much anything offered to them!
