AQUARIUM CARE: The red-line Rasbora prefers the surface levels of its habitat, around floating plants, where it feeds on surface insects. It is an active shoaler, but does not need fast flowing water. An attempt to replicate this in captivity would involve a large tank with surface plants, and regular feedings of fruit flies supplemented by other live foods and some dry food.

BREEDING: Breeding is possible in the maintenance tank, especially if newly hatched artemia nauplii are regularly given, as this will provide food for adults and fry alike

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Too many fish? Overstocked tanks stress the fish in many ways: competition for food and space, bullying from other fish, deterioration of water quality and increased concentration of disease vectors. A lightly stocked tank will always be easier to care for, with more stable water quality
