Harlequin Rasbora

(Rasbora Heteromorpha)

This small rasbora is a well known aquarium fish that has been very popular for almost a century. It is so popular that it is sometimes referred to as "The Rasbora". It's body is silver or beige with a dark triangular marking near the base of the tail. This marking maks the harlequin rasbora easily recognisable. They prefer planted aquariums and should be kept in a shoal. Individuals kept on their own will become very nerous and stressed and may get infected with whitespot, a stress related disease.
