Food and feeding

Will accept all foods offered. Quality flakes or small pellets should make up the staple diet. A treat of blood worms or brine shrimp will be welcomed.


Hi-spot rasbora is to be found in the acidic waters and rivers of Malaysia and Sumatra.


There are no physical differences between the sexes.


Acidic, soft water conditions must be provided for Rasbora dorsiocellata to breed. A selection of fine leaved plants or Java moss should be added for the eggs to be deposited onto. The parents need to be conditioned on live foods and once the eggs have been laid, the parents should be moved. The eggs will hatch in 24-36 hours and the fry, once free swimming should be fed on Infusoria or newly hatched brine shrimp.


The expected life span for Rasbora dorsiocellata is 4-6 years.

Short description

A very peaceful species, that does well in the community tank. Hi-spot rasboras should be kept in groups of at least 6 fish, provide open swimming spaces with some plants and hiding places for cover.
