Dwarf Emerald Rasbora or Microrasbora erythromicron are stunning nano species of Microrasbora that come from Myanmar. This small fish is incredibly peaceful and tends to be shy in small numbers. Dwarf Emerald Rasbora are a shoaling fish that do well in planted setups. Their beautiful hues of teal and blue with accents of red and orange make them stand out in any aquarium.
We recommend keeping these fish in group of 10 or more due to their timid nature.
In nature, these fish come from the margins of mountainous lakes where vegetation grows thick. Therefore, these fish are the perfect addition to a well planted aquarium. They prefer more alkaline water and will not do well in acidic setups. In nature, the Dwarf Emerald Rasbora feed on micro organisms and small insects.
Our Tank Parameters
Dwarf Emerald Rasbora
Arrived warm, but fish are doing well now. Very colorful and active. I have bloody Mary shrimp and snails in there also.
Received order as advertised... Shrimp and Fish came in breathable bag and seemed none the worse for wear shipping overnight to the east coast. As for the shrimp, my tank is heavily planted with plenty of cover, and I occasionally one. I assume all five are in good condition. The Rasboras are doing well in my 75 gal with tiger barbs, tetras, algea eaters, and clown loaches.
The fish arrived healthy and I look forward to seeing their colors as they mature
Dwarf emerald rasboras arrived in very good condition with 1 extra. All are thriving! Great addition to my tank!
