Harlequin RasboraTrigonostigma heteromorpha
The Harlequin is a popular aquarium fish and ideal for a community of other small, peaceful fishes. Harlequins are shoaling fish and need to be kept in groups, ideally in aquariums with densely planted areas and plenty of hiding spots. Over time the body shape deepens and older fish often exhibit a high-backed shape. Good water quality is required for long-term health and the fish prefer slightly soft, acidic water. A good aquarium fish for planted tanks or peaceful communities. Harlequins also make good tank-mates for timid or nervous fish.
