Care Guide for Dwarf Emerald Rasbora:

Aquarium Setup:

    • Provide a well-established aquarium of at least 10 gallons.
    • Keep the tank heavily planted, mimicking the fish's natural habitat. Include some floating plants for shade.
  1. Water Parameters:

    • Maintain stable water parameters: pH around 6.0-7.0, temperature between 72-82°F (22-28°C), and soft to moderately hard water (4-10 dGH).
  2. Filtration:

    • Use a gentle filtration system to avoid strong currents that may stress the fish.
  3. Tank Mates:

    • Keep Dwarf Emerald Rasboras in groups of at least 6 individuals.
    • Opt for peaceful tank mates such as other small rasboras, small tetras, or peaceful dwarf shrimp species.
  4. Feeding:

    • Offer a varied diet including high-quality flake food, small pellets, freeze-dried or frozen foods such as bloodworms, daphnia, and brine shrimp.
    • Supplement their diet with live foods occasionally to mimic their natural feeding habits.
  5. Water Quality:

    • Regularly perform partial water changes to maintain excellent water quality.
    • Test water parameters regularly, especially during initial setup and after any significant changes.
  6. Behavior:

    • Dwarf Emerald Rasboras are peaceful and prefer to be kept in a calm environment. Avoid keeping them with aggressive or nippy fish.
    • They are shoaling fish and feel more secure in a group, which also enhances their natural colors and behaviors.
  7. Health:

    • Keep an eye out for signs of illness such as loss of appetite, abnormal swimming behavior, or changes in appearance.
    • Quarantine new fish before introducing them to the main tank to prevent introducing diseases.
  8. Breeding:

    • Breeding Dwarf Emerald Rasboras can be encouraged with regular water changes, a balanced diet, and ample hiding places such as dense plants or spawning mops.
    • Separate breeding pairs into a separate tank to protect the eggs and fry from being eaten by other tank mates.
  9. Observation:

    • Spend time observing your fish daily to monitor their behavior and ensure they are healthy and thriving.

By following these guidelines, you can create a suitable environment for your Dwarf Emerald Rasboras, promoting their health, longevity, and vibrant colors.
