Rasboras consists of over 80 different recognized species. In addition, many species outside of the genus Rasbora are often considered Rasbora fish. Therefore, the term ”Rasbora” can potentially refer to a large group of fish, at least in the aquarium hobby. Phoenix Rasbora, also known as Merah Rasbora, is traditionally found in Southern Borneo. They are known for their small size and vivid red coloring that makes them the perfect size for a smaller tank.
