Chili Rasbora

The Chili Rasbora, also known as the Mosquito Rasbora, is an absolute favorite here at Flip Aquatics. These fish reach a max size of about 1 inch and their peaceful temperament makes them a perfect addition to any shrimp tank.

Please Note: All fish shipments have a 100% Live Arrival Guarantee when shipping with Overnight (1 Day) option. All other options void our Live Arrival Guarantee for fish. 

In the right conditions, these fish have the most amazing coloration out of any nano fish. In groups of 10 or more they tend to show better color due to lack of stress. For this reason, we always recommend keeping them in larger groups. 

The scientific name for Chili Rasboras is Boraras brigittae.

We feed our Chili Rasboras a mix of baby brine and Northfin Fry food. We also supplement their diet with a mix of Northfin Veggie and Community.

Chili rasboras

They’re very cute. However I managed to pour them into the sink, and even I picked them up as quickly and gently as I could , they all died.
Waiting till I have more funds to try again.

What can I say, as expected when ordering from Flip the Chili’s we’re received quickly with no doa. Would definitely recommend Flip for all your fishy needs.

Great little fish

These fish came in well packaged and healthy, as did the rest of my order. They ate right away and colored up within a few days. All are still alive and healthy after almost 3 weeks.

They came in very small. I like that because I know they are young and I will get more of their maximum lifespan. I just mention it because it's good to have some baby brine or other foods for fry and very small fish. They are too small to eat any pellets I have on hand. They do eat crushed flake food.

This was my second order from Flip Aquatics and both have been great. I highly recommend them.
