Ease of care
Easy. Great for beginners, very few specific requirements. Because they are rather small, be careful not to house with overly large fish that may mistake them for food.
The food we recommend is fish flake or very small granules. They can occasionally have smaller frozen or live food, like daphnia.
A community aquarium with similar size non-aggressive species is ideal (avoid overly-large fish).
Fairly easy. Males will attempt to attract females by displaying their fins alongside eachother. White Cloud Mountain Minnows are egg-scatterers, dropping their eggs freely amongst vegetation.
White Cloud Mountain Minnow fish have an average lifespan live of 3-5 years in perfect conditions.
