- Nano Fish
The Blue Axelrodi Rasbora or Sundadanio axelrodi blue is a small quite rare freshwater fish. They make a great addition to any nano tank. They have amazing colors of blue-green spangled bodies while males have some reddish area on their lower body. They originate from Greater Sunda Islands of Borneo and Sumatra. They are best kept in groups of at least 6 fish. It is a schooling species by nature and do better if kept in a group of 20-30 specimens. Instead of a large number of them, you could have like sized and temperament fish to make them feel more comfortable.
What are they like?
If you’re looking for a peaceful tropical freshwater fish with a flashy appearance and fun personality, the Blue Axelrodi Rasbora is a great match for you. Rasboras enjoy living with fellow peaceful tankmates and thrive in groups of ten or more. They are active swimmers in the aquarium and can live up to four years with proper care and attention.
For whom is the Blue Axelrodi Rasbora suited?
Blue Axelrodi Rasboras require pristine water conditions to live happily and can be hard to acclimate to new environments. They do best when introduced to a well-established tank with ample swimming space and therefore are better suited to more experienced aquarists.
The ideal conditions for Blue Axelrodi Rasbora
Axelrodi Rasboras are originally from warm, acidic swamps and shallow creeks, making them partial to warmer, softer water conditions. To keep your Axelrodi content, be sure to create a dimly lit environment with moderate water movement in a densely planted aquarium. Free swimming space is a must so it’s best to keep the central tank area free from decoration.
What we feed our Axelrodi Rasbora
Naturally omnivorous, Blue Axelrodi Rasbora enjoy eating small live foods such as baby brine, Daphnia, Blackworms, Bloodworms, and scuds. Often picky eaters, Axelrodi are known to refuse dried food but can learn to accept it over time. We supplement their diet with a mix of Northfin Veggie, Community, and Bug Pro to ensure a balanced and nutritious diet.
Our Tank Parameters
These little ones arrived packed so well. There was an extra in there, which was a good thing since one fish was DOA. I ended up getting just the number I ordered. These rasboras are so beautiful when they color back up. They tend to keep to themselves in the background of the aquarium. They're peaceful with my neocaridina shrimp. Although I thought they might school together with my spotted rasboras, they don't. But they're not aggressive and don't seem to compete for food with them.
They are absolutely tiny but can see their almost Neon blue bodies from across the room! Very pretty fish! Thank you for great customer service!
Of a large group, only one did not make it. There had sent me two more than original order. Some were stressed a little but they are all doing well after a week of baby brine shrimp. Overall, good experience. Great schooling fish for aquascaping.
I bought these for my daughter’s tank she adores them.. They are doing great , just like everything else we have purchased from you. I have not lost any. They are so healthy and happy..I won’t buy from anyone else. Not to mention the awesome customer service.Thanks again.
But sadly they all died. They were very tiny and I guess just couldn’t handle the shipping maybe?
