The Phoenix Rasbora (Boraras merah) is a beautiful nano fish that is very popular among aquarists due to their schooling behavior, peaceful personality, and very small size. This schooling fish can be the highlight in any peaceful community aquarium and will particularly stand out in the planted aquarium. With a balanced diet and care, many males of this species display bright red colors. This species is often confused with a very similar species, Chili Rasbora (Boraras brigittae). In fact, there is some debate among experts as to whether the Phoenix Rasbora and the Chili Rasbora are in fact separate species or rather just geographic variants of a single species. Compared to the markings and color of the Chili Rasbora, the Phoenix Rasbora’s dark markings are typically more broken and red coloration is more limited to these areas of dark markings.
