Brilliant Rasbora (Rasbora einthovenii)
The Brilliant Rasbora is an undemanding fish which will settle well into most soft water aquariums. Provide plenty of swimming space and dense patches of vegetation. Suitable for a peaceful community with peaceful tankmates. Although the fish may grow to 8 or 9cm, it rarely reaches above 6 or 7 in the aquarium, making it suitable to mix with the smallest of fishes. The fish may jump if spooked, so a good hood is essential.
