Chili Rasbora (Rasbora brigittae)

Imported European Fish

22 reviews Write a Review


These micro-fish are native to Southeast Asia and are brilliantly red in adulthood, and have interesting gold-lined black stripes down their center. This is a completely peaceful fish, and there is never any violence displayed amongst the species. Chili Rasboras very much appreciate being kept in a planted tank with plenty of spaces to hide in and chase each other around and through.


Chili Rasboras are traditional egg scatterers; they will readily breed in an aquarium with plenty of plant cover and nice, soft water; in the wild, these fish are found in very soft and acidic water so these are the conditions in which the readily spawn, leaving eggs scattered all over the bottom of the aquarium. You should be aware, though, that they will also eat their own eggs and tiny fry sometimes, so if you wish to breed them, keep in mind that after laying eggs, you will want to move the breeding adults out of that tank and into another one so that they don't eat their eggs or their tiny fry when they hatch.


Make sure you are feeding them fine flakes and baby brine shrimp as a treat from time to time and these fish will thrive! We have noted that these fish will turn very, very red when fed a diet of red color enhancing fish flakes, so that is a very good way to really make these beautiful tiny fish pop with color in your home aquascape! This fish does not ship individually bagged, sizes are always assorted, Approx. 1/2 to 1 inch each.

    Beautiful Chili Rasbora!

    AWESOME experience. Jason and team got me the fish in a super-timely manner, despite a windstorm that shut down power and internet in the area! AND, when i pointed out some additional address data because of a local confusion by the post office, he sent me a picture of the package with the additional instructions on it. At that point, receiving all the tiny (primarily a shrimp tank), beautiful, healthy fish was just icing on the cake/service. I'll be back!

    Chili Rasboras and Emerald Rasboras

    I bought Chili Rasboras and Emerald Rasboras, they all arrived incredibly healthy and colorful. The packaging was some of the best that I've seen and as a result they all survived! Thank you so much for these high quality fish, recommending this site to everyone from now on.

    Better than expected!

    I was surprised these all came in alive especially since they are very delicate little fish. They are all in a community tank and look great and are active.

    Extremely interesting FISH!!!

    Ordered 15, all arrived healthy and unstressed. These very small fish fit right in with my heavily planted aquarium and freshwater cherry shrimp. Ordered 20 more of these uniquely colored and active fish and we really have a busy shoal !
