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

Well planted aquariums are not only great looking, they are also very beneficial to the fish. They oxygenate the water, absorb nitrates, reduce algae and provide refuge for fry (and other timid species). Plants like Java fern, hornwort, Amazon sword, Vallisneria (eel grass), Cryptocoryne and Anubias can all do well in a typical home aquarium with the smallest amount of attention
