(TROP-193) U067 MOSQUITO RASBORA (Rasbora brigittae)

The mosquito rasbora (Boraras brigittae), also known as the chili rasbora, is a small freshwater fish that is native to the swamps of South West Borneo, Indonesia. It is a popular aquarium fish due to its small size, peaceful nature, and vibrant red color.

Mosquito rasboras are small fish, only growing to be about 1.5 inches in length. They have a slender body and a bright red color with a black stripe running down the middle of their back. They also have a black spot at the base of their tail.

Mosquito rasboras are peaceful fish and are best kept in groups of 6 or more. They are also hardy fish and are easy to care for. They prefer soft, acidic water with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5. They should also be kept in a tank with plenty of plants and hiding places.

Mosquito rasboras are omnivores and will eat a variety of foods, including flakes, pellets, live food, and frozen food. They should be fed twice a day.

Mosquito rasboras are not difficult to breed. They will spawn in a tank with plenty of plants and soft, acidic water. The female will lay her eggs on the plants, and the male will fertilize them. The fry will hatch after about 2 days, and they will need to be fed infusoria or brine shrimp until they are large enough to eat flakes or pellets.

Mosquito rasboras are a beautiful and peaceful fish that make great additions to any aquarium. They are easy to care for and are relatively hardy, making them a good choice for beginner aquarium hobbyists.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind when caring for mosquito rasboras:

  • Water quality: Mosquito rasboras are sensitive to water quality, so it is important to test the water regularly and make sure that the levels of ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate are within the safe range.
  • Tank mates: Mosquito rasboras can be kept with other peaceful fish of similar size. However, it is important to avoid keeping them with aggressive fish. Some good tank mates for mosquito rasboras include other rasboras, tetras, and danios.
  • Maintenance: Mosquito rasboras require regular tank maintenance. The tank should be cleaned and the water changed weekly.
