**Rasbora – General Care Guidelines**

**Tank Size:**
– Depending on the specific species, rasboras can vary in size. A 10 to 20-gallon tank is suitable for smaller rasbora species, while larger species may require a 20 to 30-gallon tank or more.
– Keep in mind the adult size and the number of rasboras you plan to keep when determining tank size.

**Water Parameters:**
– Temperature: 72°F – 80°F (22°C – 27°C) for most species.
– pH: 6.0 – 7.5.
– Hardness: Soft to moderately hard water.

**Tank Setup:**
– Use fine-gravel or sand substrate.
– Provide live or artificial plants to create hiding spots and simulate their natural habitat.
– Driftwood and rocks can also be added for additional hiding places.

– Rasboras are omnivores. Offer a varied diet including high-quality flakes, pellets, and small live or frozen foods like brine shrimp, daphnia, and bloodworms.
– Supplement their diet with occasional vegetable matter.

**Behavior and Compatibility:**
– Rasboras are generally peaceful and shoaling fish. Keep them in groups of at least 6 or more to reduce stress.
– They are compatible with other peaceful community fish that share similar water parameters.

**Water Maintenance:**
– Perform regular water changes of 20-30% to maintain water quality and remove waste.
– Monitor water parameters, especially ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and pH levels.

**Tank Mates:**
– Choose tank mates that are non-aggressive and similar in size.
– Avoid keeping rasboras with fin-nipping or aggressive species.

– Some rasbora species are relatively easy to breed in a separate breeding tank with suitable conditions, such as soft and slightly acidic water.
– Provide fine-leaved plants, a spawning mop, or a mesh spawning box for egg deposition.

**General Tips:**
– Provide subdued lighting, as rasboras may prefer dimly lit environments.
– Maintain stable water conditions and good filtration.
– Avoid sudden changes in water parameters to prevent stress.

Please note that while these care guidelines offer a general overview, there may be variations in care requirements among different rasbora species. Always research the specific species you plan to keep for more accurate and detailed care information.
