My NEW Fish! - Meteor Minnows ( Longfin White Cloud Mountain)

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I thought I would share some pics of these beauties I recently picked up. These fishes seem to be quite rare and it has been 5 years since I have seen them last which was in a little fish store down in Melbourne. Anyways, I have 16 of them in a 4ft planted tank, all swimming around well but don't have much interest in eating...

If anyone has any advice, it would be much appreciated.

Some pics:

Beautiful male


Equally stunning female


Males flaring


Hope you like them as much as I do! :D

Thanks guys, absolutely in love with these beautiful and graceful fish. Their constant flaring is an amazing to watch. The white cloud fishes originated from the White Cloud Moutains in China.

Heres a neat youtube video I found of the behaviour of these fish. They pretty much flare up every time they come in close proximity to each other.
