Very active schooling fish native to India and Sri Lanka. Hardy and easily kept, ideal for community aquaria with other peaceful species. Grows to about 10cm.
A hardy and highly active shoaling fish for the upper region of the aquarium. It is recommended that they be purchased as a group of 6 or more, as individual specimens tend to fade away by themselves.
Although boisterous and liable to chase each other and other fish, they are good community fish and will not generally attack each other or other fish, although they occasionally nip fins, more by accident than design and will, like most fish, eat eggs and any fish small enough to fit into their mouths.
They are best kept in a tank long enough for their active swimming, preferably with a current from a power filter (or at least airstone) as they often live in fast-flowing streams in the wild. Generally, this also results in them being subtropical with temperatures of 20 to 22 degrees Celsius (low seventies degrees Fahrenheit) often being fine, however, they are good jumpers and a tight-fitting lid is recommended.
