Food and feeding

Should accept all foods offered. Long-band rasboras need a staple diet of quality flake, this should be supplemented with white worms, blood worms and brine shrimp.


South East Asia; Malaysia, Borneo and Sumatra.


Males tend to be smaller and slimmer than the females. The females will have a much deeper body shape.


Spawning mops, moss, or fine leaved plants should be added to the tank to provide spawning sites. As soon as the eggs have been deposited, the parents must be removed or they will eat them. The eggs should hatch after 24-48 hours and once the fry are free swimming they should be fed on Infusoria. They will be too small to accept larger foods at this stage. When they have grown a bit, crushed flake can be offered to them.


The expected life span for Rasbora einthovenii is 3-5 years.

Short description

A very lively fish, it is very peaceful and will be compatible with most community fish. Rasbora einthovenii require acidic water to thrive, water changes are also very important to keep them happy.
