Phoenix Rasbora (Boraras merah)


The Phoenix Rasbora, also known as Boraras merah, is a beautifully vibrant freshwater fish known for its deep red-orange hue. Originating from the peat swamps and blackwater streams of Southeast Asia, its small stature combined with its striking appearance makes it an ideal candidate for nano aquariums and peaceful community tanks.

How to Keep:

Phoenix Rasboras thrive in soft, slightly acidic to neutral water conditions, mimicking their natural habitat.
