Brilliant Rasbora (Rasbora einthovenii)

Brilliant Rasbora Tropical Fish Learn all about the Brilliant Rasbora's feeding habits and food types, its behaviour, its origins, its natural habitats, is it male or female, breeding advice and information, suitable tank mates, its sizing and growth range, minimum tank size, water PH and more. Use our fish community creator tool to plan your tank set up and ensure that the Brilliant Rasbora is the right fish for your aquarium.

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.
