Maculata rasboras, also known as Boraras maculatus or the Dwarf Rasbora, are small, peaceful fish belonging to the Cyprinidae family. They are native to Southeast Asia, particularly found in slow-moving waters such as peat swamps, streams, and ponds in countries like Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia.

Here are some key points about Maculata rasboras:

  1. Size: They are tiny fish, typically reaching a maximum size of around 2 centimeters (0.8 inches).
  2. Appearance: Maculata rasboras have a slender body with an iridescent silver coloration. Their body is adorned with distinct dark markings, which can vary in intensity depending on the fish’s mood and environmental conditions.
  3. Behavior: These rasboras are peaceful and social fish, making them excellent community tank inhabitants. They prefer to be kept in groups of at least six individuals to feel secure and exhibit their natural behaviors.
  4. Tank Requirements: A well-established aquarium with dense vegetation, subdued lighting, and plenty of hiding spots mimicking their natural habitat is ideal. They thrive in slightly acidic to neutral water conditions with temperatures ranging from 22°C to 28°C (72°F to 82°F).
  5. Diet: Maculata rasboras are omnivores and will readily accept a variety of foods, including high-quality flake, pellet, and frozen foods. Offering them a varied diet ensures their overall health and vibrancy.
  6. Breeding: Breeding Maculata rasboras can be challenging due to their small size and specific water requirements. However, providing them with a densely planted breeding tank with soft, slightly acidic water can encourage spawning. The fry are tiny and require infusoria or commercially available fry food for their initial stages of development.
  7. Compatibility: They are compatible with other small, peaceful fish species that share similar water parameter requirements. Avoid keeping them with larger or aggressive tank mates that may intimidate or prey on them.
  8. Care: Regular water changes and maintenance are essential for keeping Maculata rasboras healthy. They are relatively hardy but can be sensitive to sudden changes in water conditions.

Overall, Maculata rasboras are charming additions to a well-maintained aquarium, bringing color, activity, and a sense of tranquility to the tank.
