They can be a variety of colour tones, but all have a characteristic horizontal line on their bodies, and are usually less than 1.5". Males are generally more colourful than the females.

White Clouds are ideal for nearly any level of aquarist. They can survive very well in nearly any freshwater tank set-up, and can even do well in a wide range of temperatures ranging from 5-30.C. They also do well with virtually all other fish, because they are very peaceful. The only exception to this would be larger fish that may eat them.

Mountain Minnows will eat virtually anything you give them. A steady diet of flakes with the occasional veggie matter or live food treat is a great diet for these hardy fish. Because of this omnivorous nature, For all fish breeders, beginner and experienced, White Clouds are a dream. They must be one of the easiest, if not the easiest, to successfully spawn. All they really need is a good plant, such as Java Moss or others, to lay their eggs in, and those are almost ideal conditions. White Clouds will spawn in nearly any tank, even community tanks. The eggs will hatch in around 48 hours, and after that, the fry will wriggle around for a few days before going to find food. A well-planted tank will be perfect for the fry to find micro-food. E.g. infusoria.
