Emerald Eye Rasbora (Rasbora dorsiocellata)

The Emerald Eye Rasbora or Rasbora dorsiocellata is a small freshwater fish that does well in community aquariums.  This species of Rasbora only grows to about 2-1/2" (6cm), so this little guy only requires an aquarium of 10 gallons or more with the following water conditions, 73-79° F, KH 3-7 and pH 6.0-7.5.

The Emerald Eye Rasbora goes by a few different names including the Ocellated Rasbora, Hi-spot Rasbora, and Eyespot Rasbora.  This species originates from inside Asia, and can be identified by its dorsal fin, which is yellow with a black spot near the center.
If you are thinking of buying a Emerald Eye Rasbora for your aquarium you might want to consider picking up a few.  They do very well in schools and are an inexpensive fish, normally under $5.  An aquarium with plenty of plants and space for swimming will work best.  They are omnivores that can be fed bloodworms, tubifex and flake food as well.  You can check out the Emerald Eye Rasbora in the aquarium below...
