White Cloud Mountain Minnow (Tanichthys albonubes)
One of our most underrated fish! This gorgeous fish is typically known as a 'feeder fish' for predatorial fish keepers but it is also an 'underdog' when it comes to a community fish tank and complement a planted tank very well. Although this species is almost extinct in its natural cold water habitat in China, the white cloud minnow is usually farm raised for aquariums worldwide.
Max size: 1.5"
Minimum tank size: 10 gallons
**Sold in bundles of 5 fish**
**Individually sold fish only available at our SD storefront**
I ordered a set of 10 White Cloud Mountain Minnows and 7 Penguin Tetras. I had already lost 5 Penguins in my tank from a LFS and had 2 that I was hoping would survive; however, my parameters were just not conducive to keeping these sensitive fish. Petzone was kind enough to change my order to all White Clouds, so instead of 10, I know have 15 swimming happily in my 39 gal with my Betta and my female bushynose pleco.
Really impressed with the quality and care my fish were packaged with. FedEx delayed my package by 3 days and these guys all showed up alive and in good condition. They are small and require some time to grow, but I think that's part of the excitement. They are already very active and zipping around my tank. Would definitely order again.
