Emerald Dwarf Rasbora (Danio erythromicron)
The Emerald Dwarf Rasbora is a small, curious and active microrasbora that originates from the lakes of Eastern Myanmar.
In Australia these fish are not as often seen in aquarium shops and stock can only be sourced from locally bred populations.
Max Size- 2.5cm
Temperature- 68-80.6°F (20-27°C)
Found in the shallow, densely planted lakes of Myanmar these fish should ideally be kept in similar aquarium conditions in the home aquarium. When kept in groups of at least 6 they can be observed at their best.
Additionally, these fish spawn very easily in the home aquarium. They lay their eggs almost daily and given the aquarium has enough cover the fry can survive predation. Furthermore, males are easily distinguished by their more distinct pattern as well as their deeper body colour.
Growing to a maximum of 2.5cm this fish are well suited to smaller aquariums and are considered somewhat shrimp safe. Also they enjoy a lifespan of 3-5yrs.
The Emerald dwarf Rasbora are omnivores and will take a wide range of foods as long as they are within the correct size range. Crushed flake and pellets are great staple as well as frozen daphnia, brine shrimp and mosquito larvae.
