White Cloud Minnow

The white cloud is a great addition to any aquarium planted, or unplanted. The white cloud has great color contrast displaying white to gold coloration with red coloration on its fins and tail. They show schooling behavior in small groups, this behavior is very evident in larger groups of 10 or more.

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. 

The white cloud is great for small tanks from 10 gallons and up.

The white cloud minnow can reach a size of 1.25 inches and is a great community and beginner fish do to its adaptability to a large range of water parameters. We would not recommend keeping them with shrimp if trying to grow your colony as they can target baby shrimp easily.

The scientific name for the White Cloud Minnow is: Tanichthys albonubes

We feed our White Clouds a mix of frozen foods including daphnia, baby brine and cyclops. We occasionally feed them Northfin Veggie. Will accept live foods if prepared.

White Cloud Minnows

I ordered 5 White Cloud Minnows and I received 6 of them. They have been in my tank for a week now and they are all doing really well so far. They eat good and seem to enjoy their home. They are pretty small and I’m not sure how long it takes to grow to full size, I’m curious to know. The shipping price is pretty steep, and confusing, in my opinion…but anyway, I am enjoying my White Cloud Minnows!
