The Chili Rasboras, also called the Mosquito Rasbora, is a stunning nano fish and one of our personal favorites. Native to the tropical peat bogs of Borneo, these fish have beautiful colorations and patterns which make them stand out in any planted tank. They are a smaller fish and can grow to a max size at about 0.75 inch which makes them perfect for shrimp tanks.
For them to show off their deep red coloration, we recommend keeping these guys in groups of 10 or more for them to feel safe in a large school.
You can also breed Chili Rasboras in your hobby aquarium, just so long as you follow our recommended tank perimeters. Since the eggs are fertilized externally, you can expect the eggs to settle at the bottom of the tank. With time, the eggs will develop and hatch.
In the wild, Chili Rasboras feed off of proteins like worms, and insects. We feed them a mix of live baby brine shrimp, frozen daphnia, and high-quality flake food.
Chili Rasboras are calm in nature and can be excellent tank mates for shrimp and other smaller nano fish.
Chili Rasboras are pretty easy to care for as long as they are introduced to a mature, cycled tank. They can acclimate to a wide range of parameters.
