Introducing the captivating Blue Axelrodi Rasbora, also known as Sundadanio axelrodi blue, a small and rare freshwater gem that will enhance any nano tank with its vibrant presence. Adorned with mesmerizing blue-green spangled bodies, the males of this species feature striking reddish areas on their lower bodies. Hailing from the enchanting Greater Sunda Islands of Borneo and Sumatra, these rasboras are best enjoyed in groups of at least six individuals.
Prepare to be enthralled by the peaceful nature and stunning appearance of the Blue Axelrodi Rasbora. With its flashy colors and playful personality, this tropical freshwater fish is a delightful addition to any aquarium. They thrive in the company of fellow peaceful tankmates and truly come alive when housed in groups of ten or more. With proper care and attention, these active swimmers can grace your tank for up to four years, bringing joy and vitality to their watery domain.
While the Blue Axelrodi Rasbora offers a rewarding aquaristic experience, it's worth noting that they require pristine water conditions and may find it challenging to acclimate to new environments. It's best to introduce them to a well-established tank that provides ample swimming space. Therefore, they are better suited for experienced aquarists who can meet their specific needs.
Creating the ideal conditions for the Blue Axelrodi Rasbora is crucial to their well-being. Originating from warm, acidic swamps and shallow creeks, these rasboras thrive in slightly warmer and softer water. To ensure their contentment, create a dimly lit environment with moderate water movement in a densely planted aquarium. Providing free swimming space by keeping the central tank area free from excessive decoration is essential to mimic their natural habitat.
Feeding the Blue Axelrodi Rasbora requires attention to their natural omnivorous tendencies. While they enjoy small live foods such as baby brine, Daphnia, Blackworms, Bloodworms, and scuds, they may initially be reluctant to accept dried food. Over time, they can learn to accept it. To provide a balanced and nutritious diet, we recommend supplementing their meals with a mix of Northfin Veggie, Community, and Bug Pro, ensuring their nutritional needs are met.

Here is a photo my review yesterday. I hope this helps people see these cool little fish.
I received my blue axelrodi rasbora on the rquested date (Amanda help the order while I was on vacation and they arrived promptly on my return). The fish was perfectly packed and I followed the acclimation instructions to the letter. No fish were lost and they are happily co-existing with ember tetras, snails and shrimp in my planted tank. They are little but the blue color already shines. Thank you!
My 29 gallon is looking great and the fish and the plants are thriving. I hope I don’t put too many fish!
All fish arrived healthy and extremely active. I’m very happy with my purchase.
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.
