The Harlequin Rasbora is fairly popular, because it is a hardy community fish
that can tolerate variations in pH levels. It originates from the Thailand
and Malaysia area. It has a pinkish body with a black triangle filling
most of its back half. It likes lots of plants and dim lighting, which
actually helps enhance its color. Harlequin Rasbora should be kept in
schools of 8 - 10.
Females are slightly larger than the males. Eggs are spawned on
the underside of broad leaves and surfaces. After spawning, remove the
parents and keep the aquarium dark until the eggs hatch a day later. Feed the
fry infusoria or brine shrimp.
