$4.50$5.49

A popular and attractively marked dwarf cyprinid, the Emerald Dwarf Rasbora is technically not a rasbora at all despite its common name and is in fact a member of the Danio family. Found in the clear, vegetation-rich waters of Inle Lake in Myanmar, the species is considered threatened in the wild although it is bred on a large scale in Indonesia and elsewhere for the aquarium trade. With their tiny adult size and attractive banded pattern, they are a popular species among nano and planted tank hobbyists and make for an impressive display when kept in a group. A schooling, social species, they should be kept in groups of at least 5 fish (10 or more is ideal) and tankmates should be chosen with caution as they may spook this small and somewhat shy fish.
