White Cloud Mountain Minnow (Tanichthys albonubes)


Originating from the White Cloud Mountain region of China, the White Cloud Mountain Minnow is a small, lively, and colorful fish. Often referred to as the "working man's neon" because of its bright colors and affordability, it's an excellent choice for both novice and expert aquarists.


  • Brilliant and vivid coloration
  • Hardy and adaptable nature
  • Peaceful temperament, perfect for community tanks
  • Does not require a heater in most indoor conditions

How to Keep:

These minnows prefer cooler water temperatures and can even be kept in unheated tanks. While they are tolerant to a range of water conditions, a well-planted tank with gentle water flow replicates their natural habitat best. They thrive in schools, so it's recommended to keep them in groups of at least 6.
