White Cloud Danio
The White Cloud Mountain Minnow is a small, freshwater fish native to the White Cloud Mountains in China. It is a popular choice for aquarium hobbyists due to its bright silver coloration and active swimming behavior. These minnows are generally peaceful and can be kept in a community tank with other non-aggressive fish. They are a good choice for beginner aquarists and can be kept in a small tank, as they only grow to about 2 inches in length.
In terms of care, it is important to provide a well-filtered tank for these fish as they are prone to stress and can be sensitive to water quality. They prefer cooler water temperatures, typically ranging from 65 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit, and will do best in a tank with plenty of hiding places. It is also important to provide a varied diet, as they are omnivorous and will accept a variety of foods including flakes, pellets, and live or frozen options such as brine shrimp or daphnia.
In terms of breeding, White Cloud Mountain Minnows are egg-layers and will readily breed in a well-maintained tank. The male fish will construct a nest out of bubbles at the surface of the water, and the female will lay her eggs in the nest. The male will then guard the nest and care for the eggs until they hatch. It is important to separate the fry from the adult fish once they hatch, as the adults may eat them.
Overall, the White Cloud Mountain Minnow is a hardy and attractive addition to any freshwater aquarium. They are a fun and easy species to keep, and make a great choice for both beginner and experienced aquarists.
