Discription :
The Espe’s Rasbora is a small slender fish, reaching a total length of just over 1 inch (3 cm). They have a typical lifespan of 3 to 5 years with good care. Their primary color is copper-orange with a pinkish blush, and the body color appears to be increasingly reflective approaching the lateral line. It has a black lambchop-shaped marking on the side, and the fins are clear except for yellow triangles on the dorsal fin and tail. Depending on point of origin, some specimens are a more intense red.


Care :
These fish are not exceptionally difficult to care for provided their water is kept clean. At least 25 to 50% of the tank water should be replaced once a month. If the tank is densely stocked, replace 20 to 25% weekly or every other week. The substrate should also be vacuumed during water changes to avoid accumulation of waste. 

Feeding :

The Espe’s Rasboras are Omnivorous. In the wild, they feed on small insects, worms, crustaceans, and zooplankton. In the aquarium, their diet should be based around a quality flake or pellet food supplemented by the occasional live snack of brine shrimp or bloodworms. They will also welcome some blanched lettuce or spinach. These fish will do best when fed several times a day, but only offer what they can eat in 3 minutes or less at each feeding. If you feed only once per day, provide what they can eat in about 5 minutes.

Breeding :
Unlike most Cyprinids, which are “egg scatterers”, members of the Triginostigma genus attach their eggs to the underside of broad leaves. Spawning in home aquaria is unlikely as this species requires pristine, acidic, and very soft water for successful breeding.


Social Behavior :
These fish must absolutely be kept in groups of at least 8 or more individuals. These rasboras are schooling fish by nature, but don't always swim in a tight school unless the school is very large or there are other large fish in the tank. Regardless, these fish need to be kept in a group for their well-being. They may chase each other in their loose school, but injuries almost never result. Males will display their best colors as they compete for the attention of females.These are generally peaceful fish with a disposition suited to the community aquarium; however, they are very active and may disturb the peace of less tolerant fish.They can be kept with many popular community fish including other cyprinids as well as some of the characins, like tetras, and livebearers such as mollies, guppies, platies, and swordtail fish. They also do well with bottom-dwelling peaceful catfish, loaches, and even some of the dwarf cichlids. However, they will suffer in the company of overly large and aggressive fish.
