Food and feeding

These Rasboras will accept all foods offered, use a quality flake for the staple diets and provide meaty foods in the form of blood worms or brine shrimp to supplement their diet.


Asia; Reticulate rasboras are found in Malaysia and Singapore.


Females will be larger than the males with a stockier body shape.


Use a heavily planted tank with a gravel substrate for breeding purposes. The eggs will be sticky and attach to the plants or substrate, once spawning is complete, remove the parent fish. Keep the tank dimly lit as the eggs are light sensitive and once the fry are hatched and free swimming they can be fed on Infusoria.


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

Short description

Always keep Rasbora reticulata in small groups of at least six specimens., They require open swimming spaces but add some planted areas at the sides and back of the tank to provide cover. They are very peaceful and make excellent tank mates in a community set up.
