It has a striking red fins with a silvery body and it gets along very well with Neon Tetras — the color variation between the two makes for an impressive school.

White clouds are very docile, small, cooler water fish. They grow to 1- 1.5 inches long and need a few gallons per fish. They are a melange of brown,green, yellow, red, neon blue, and black. Their red can be particularly striking on their lips andcaudal fins. White clouds are native to streams in Southern China where they are now thoughtto be extinct. They live for 3-10 years. I had a pair that I bought in August, 1995. The femalewas still active and breeding until her death in 2000. The male developed cataracts before hisdeath in 1999. The female always looked like she is ready to burst with eggs. A rare long-finnedversion of the white cloud is absolutely gorgeous. One strain is called the meteor minnow. Ibought a male meteor minnow but he died in quarantine. Of course, the store had sold out bythen. Meteor minnows may also be called red rocket minnows. Annette alerted me to a newvariety of white clouds called "gold clouds." She says they are gold to light orange with red finsand red eyes. I finally saw some on 12/8/02 at my local fish store. I did not buy any because, tome, they just looked like sick, washed out regular white clouds. Half of them also had bentspines(possible tuberculosis or genetic problems). I am sure that properly cared for though, they mustbe beauties.
