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.

Perfect Experience!

Shipping was fast and fish arrived safely! Don't know what more you could ask for!


Fish came healthy and all alive. Pretty sure I got some extras along with the 20 I ordered. It was well packaged and I'm pleased with how quickly and safely they arrived. Will be ordering future fish from Flip Aquatics (:


Healthy, thriving and adorable! They were sent as tiny juveniles with rosy cheeks but 3 weeks later some are starting to get bright red coloring which is striking. All 12 that were sent have made it!

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.
