White Cloud Mountain Minnow Care Guide

White Cloud Mountain Minnow
(Tanichthys albonubes)

Common names:
White cloud mountain minnow, WCMM, Chinese danio, White cloud, Canton danio
Size: 4cm
pH: 6.0 – 8.0
Tempº: 8ºC - 25ºC
Tank region: All – but prefer surface
Origin: China
Gender: Males are more colourful.
Notes: These fish are pretty much indestructible when it comes to hardiness in the aquarium. They are ideal of beginners – but need to be in a school of at least 6 individuals. Although usually the first fish to be combined with Goldfish, this is a bad choice as the Goldfish will eventually view them as ‘fast food’ – which brings us neatly onto another point about this fish. It is very active. They are very peaceful as long as they are in a school – but if not in one they can get nervous and start to nip!
