The Emerald Dwarf Rasbora is endemic to Lake Inle in Myanmar. This clear and shallow lake is rapidly changing, putting wild populations at risk. Luckily, this species is eager to breed, resulting in healthy numbers in the aquarium trade.

These fish are peaceful and you can keep them with other peaceful same-sized fish. All fish require a good diet for a healthy life, it is recommended to feed a range of food such as live, frozen, flakes and pellets.

Emerald Dwarf Rasboras are fairly easy to care for, as long as they live in stable water parameters with good water quality.  These fish are peaceful and thrive in groups; however, they are shoaling fish rather than a schooling fish, so the males will often dance and spar with each other.  The more of these fish there are in your tank, the less shy they will act.  When these fish are healthy and are placed in a well-cycled and densely planted aquarium, it is fairly likely that they will spawn, and you may see fry start to appear.  Like all rasboras and danios, they are very peaceful and totally safe to keep with other fish (as long as the other fish are peaceful, too!), snails, shrimp, and live plants.  They do best in tanks that have plants, rock, or driftwood that provides them with cover.
