    Here is a good video to watch on how wondeeful the white clouds can be.

    When set up in a imitation of their natural environment they really become a stunning minnow.

    I've kept White Clouds for a few years, now. They are good in cooler water. They aren't particularly dirty, but you still need to keep their tank maintained. White Clouds are a schooling fish, so they need to be in a group of at least seven, preferably more. A 20-gallon tank or larger is best for them. They aren't finicky about food, but a nice balanced fish diet is best. If they're healthy, they'll eat just about anything you give them. It has to be small enough to fit into their mouths, of course. White clouds are good in a tank with Amano and/or Red Cherry Shrimp, assorted snails (not Assassin snails), and lots of live plants. They don't do well in a tank with danios, unless it's a large tank, as the danios tend to be aggressive toward White Clouds, and chase them, causing the minnows to hide. I also have White Clouds in my 65-gallon. They do well with other peaceful community fish. The emphasis is peaceful. I do have glofish and Zebra danios in the larger tank, and because there's plenty of room for everyone, the danios don't bother them. The key is to not overstock.

    Right now, I have only the minnows in my 20, along with shrimp and snails. In my 65, I have them in with Crimson-spot Rainbow fish, Rosy Barbs, Dojo Loaches, Amano Shrimp and assorted snails, along with a very few danios.

    If White Clouds breed in your tank, the fry will have an irridescent bluish tint to their bodies, making them look like tiny neon tetras. As they mature, they will take on the adult silver color with red tails.

    White Clouds are fun to keep, and easy to keep. Unfortunately, some big box stores use them as feeders in their fish departments. Don't buy them there. Go to a reputable LFS, instead.

    If you have larger fish in their tank, purchase fully grown, large White Clouds. Don't buy the little ones, or they could get eaten. Have plenty of hiding places, including masses of floating plants.

    Hope this helps.
