Sexing[edit | edit source]

Males are more slender than females. Females are determined by the roundness of their body; this is best seen by looking down into the tank.


Tank compatibility[edit | edit source]

Rasboras are great community fish, but do better when in groups of six or more.


Environment specifics[edit | edit source]

Be sure to have a secure lid, these fish are exceptionally good jumpers and they need lots of room to swim.


Identification[edit | edit source]

Scissortail Rasboras can grow up to six inches in length, and can be identified by their silver scales and black horizontal strip on there tail.
