For the first time ever we can offer this beautiful species of blackwater Rasbora. The fish attains a maximum length of about 5 cm. In its natural habitat the species is restricted to peat swamps in the central parts of Kalimantan (the Indonesian part of Borneo). Here the pH is very low. Nevertheless the species adapts very well to normal aquarium conditions and is not difficult to keep at all. However, the water has to be very clean, especially the bacterial pressure should be as low as possible. Under these conditions the fish display wonderful colours. Males can be recognized (among other features) by the much brighter red colours of the fins.

For our customers: the fish have code 453843 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
