Scissortail Rasboras are a larger species that will reach 3 inches and do well when kept in a school of six or eight. The coloring of this species is rather bland, but they're worth keeping for their behaviour and size. As large, active swimmers, they are an obvious presence in the tank. Their habit of repeatedly flicking their sharply forked tail fins adds interest and accounts for their common name.
Living Environment : All flake and freeze-dried foods are accepted. Scissortail Rasboras are also skilful jumpers, so keep a tight-fitting lid on their tank. They should have adequate swimming space and darkish aqua capping.
