Microrasbora rubescens

Explanation of the symbols


Family : Cyprinidae
Origin : Burma
Length : 3 cm - 1.2"
Min. length aquarium : 50 cm - 20"
English name : Emeral Dwarf Rasbora
Small, very peaceful schooling fish that can be kept with other small fishes.  The aquarium should be planted densely on the sides and background because they are very shy.  In the middle you should leave enough free swimming space. 

You should give them very small live food.  Dry food is accepted as well.

Breeding is rather easy.  The eggs are laid and fertilized between fine leaved plants.  After spawning the parents should be removed.  When the young fishes are swimming free you can feed them with very fine infusoria.
