General: The green neon rasbora naturally thrives in the rivers of peninsular Thailand. This small community fish will typically occupy the mid to upper areas of the water. The green neon rasbora will live peacefully with a large variety of tank mates and are a hardy addition to any new aquarium.

Dimorphism: Once mature, green neon rasbora males will become slightly brighter in coloration. The female green neon rasbora will take on a more gravid appearance when ready to reproduce.

Fecundity: This egg-scatterer will likely breed when optimal water chemistry has been consistently met. Floating plants as well as a quality diet will promote reproductive behaviors. Fry can at first be fed infusoria and later on live baby brine shrimp.

Water Chemistry: 72-82° F, KH 4-8, pH 5.5-7.5

Aquarium Diet: Green neon rasboras are omnivores and will accept brine shrimp, blackworms, fish flake, omnivore pellet, and spirulina flakes.

Compatibility: The green neon rasbora is typically compatible with small tetras such as the neon tetra (Paracheirodon innesi) or ember tetra (Hyphessobrycon amandae), danios such as the galaxy danio (Danio margaritatus), small rasbora species such as chili rasboras (Boraras brigittae), and Corydoras species.
