White cloud mountain minnows are small, colorful fish, once termed "the working man's neon" because they are compared to neon tetras in color but were not as expensive.
White cloud mountain minnows should be kept in good-sized schools, preferably 6 or more.
When kept in the right temperature range, this species of fish is very hardy and well-suited for beginner hobbyist. Although undemanding when it comes to water quality, this minnow does not deal with heat well. There is evidence that keeping white cloud mountain minnows in water that is constantly above 22 C, will shorten their lifespan.
