The Scissortail Rasbora is a sleek, streamlined fish that energizes community life in larger aquariums. This active swimmer is named for its deeply forked tail that resembles an open pair of scissors. The distinct bar pattern on the caudal fin accentuates the scissor-like shape. With a little imagination, it's not difficult to see a pair of scissors opening and closing as the Scissortail Rasbora cuts through the water. The Scissortail Rasbora boasts a silver iridescence that shimmer and sparkle as light reflects off this graceful fish.

The Scissortail Rasbora is a peaceful and easy-to-care-for fish displayed best in schools. In the wild, the Scissortail Rasbora can grow up to 6" in length. It is important to house the Scissortail Rasbora in an established aquarium that has open areas for swimming. The Scissortail Rasbora adds activity and visual interest to the upper regions of the aquarium. Use a tight-fitting cover or glass canopy to contain these potential jumpers
