The Chili Rasbora (Boraras brigittae), also known as the Mosquito Rasbora, is a strikingly beautiful nano fish that is very popular among aquarists due to its schooling behavior, peaceful disposition, and very small size. This schooling fish can be the highlight in any peaceful community aquarium and it is a particular standout in the planted aquarium. With optimal diet and care, many males of this species display bright ruby red coloration.
The Chilli Rasbora does best in an established planted aquarium with open areas for swimming. The Chilli Rasbora should be kept in schools of 8-10 individuals and housed with other small, peaceful fish.
As an omnivore, the Chilli Rasbora does well on a diet of flake food, micro pellets as well as freeze dried bloodworms and tubifex.
