Thread: Rasbora Het.

  1. Default Rasbora Het.

    Seen them at LFS today and thought they were nice looking. They look like Tetra's to me but they were double the price of Tetra's. Anyone have experience with these? I want to put maybe 4 or 5 of them in with some Glowlite Tetra's in my 20g

    These are the harlequin rasboras, right? If so, I can tell you that they are extremely peaceful. I have a school of 6 in my 10 gallon and they are actually pretty tight schoolers in my tank. I'd definitely recommend them.

    No Im pretty sure Harlequins are red and these that I seen were black, I'm wondering why they cost more than other Tetras, I'm getting them anyhow.

    I'm pretty sure that Rasbora Het are Harlequin Rasboras. In any case I love them! Have always preferred them to tetras.

    Yes, I have a school of 8 of them. Love them! Great fish!

    BTW, yes, they are one in the same--Harlequin Rasboras and Rasbora Het Tetras are both Trigonostigma (Rasbora) heteromorpha:

    I see now. I'd get these if I could afford it. For 4.09 each +tax it would cost me almost $40 for a nice school of 8.
