Chili Rasbora

Introducing the Chili Rasbora - A Captivating Addition to Your Shrimp Tank!

Discover the beauty of the Chili Rasbora (Boraras brigittae), also known as the Mosquito Rasbora. These tiny fish, reaching a maximum size of about 1 inch, have captured our hearts at Flip Aquatics. With their peaceful temperament, they make a perfect addition to any shrimp tank, creating a harmonious aquatic environment.

In the right conditions, the Chili Rasbora displays astonishing coloration, making it one of the most visually striking nano fish. To bring out their vibrant hues, we recommend keeping them in groups of 10 or more. Larger groups reduce stress levels, allowing their colors to shine brilliantly in your aquarium.

Scientifically known as Boraras brigittae, these captivating fish add life and vibrancy to your aquatic setup. Their small size and peaceful nature make them an ideal choice for shrimp tanks, where they can coexist peacefully with their crustacean companions.

Feeding our Chili Rasboras is a pleasure. We provide them with a mix of baby brine and Northfin Fry food to ensure their nutritional needs are met. Additionally, we supplement their diet with a combination of Northfin Veggie and Community foods, providing a well-rounded and balanced meal plan.

Perfect Nano Fish

I bought my Chili Rasboras from Flip Aquatics probably about six months ago now. They arrived on time, packaged very well. I was sent an extra, and all of them are thriving! On arrival their colors were a bit dull. After going in a tank with tons of love plants and driftwood, and shrimp, they were so red! Still the colors of these little guys are so brilliant red. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Will definitely purchase again. I would love to add to their group. Thank you!


These nice little fish arrived alive and in good condition. I appreciated that Amelia worked with me to have my entire order delivered on a specific day when I would be home.

They are very healthy but they are extremely tiny. Not sure if they get much bigger. These are my first Chili’s rasboras. So far I am very happy with the fish that I have gotten
