Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but it is also an active and peaceful inhabitant. It is important to ensure a well-established and densely planted aquarium for this species, as it is essential for its well-being and comfort.

To ensure that your Rasbora stays healthy, it is best to vary its diet, giving it a mix of both animal proteins and plant-based foods.
