The Axelrod Rasbora is a peaceful, active, schooling fish.
This fish is one of the more brilliantly coloured species of the genus, especially the male.
Rasbora axelrodi needs a well-established, densely-planted aquarium with plenty of free swimming space available.
This species does well in a community aquarium with other peaceful and similarly-sized species.
Unfortunately, the Axelrod Rasboras breeding habits in the aquarium have not been documented.
An omnivore, this Rasbora does well on a diet of prepared flake food, as well as freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex.
