Setting up of ornamental fish bowl for White Cloud Mountain minnow

White Cloud Mountain minnow can be reared in ornamental fish bowls. This ornamental fish is known in the aquarium trade in various names like White Cloud, White Cloud minnow, Chinese danio and White Cloud Mountain fish.

These species are native to China and are first discovered in White Cloud Mountains (hence the name). These are very hardy and tolerate fluctuations of temperature, pH and water hardness. They can stand low temperatures and usually do not require heaters.

There are two main variants of this ornamental fish namely 'meteor minnow' and 'golden cloud'. Other variants like blond, pink and golden meteor minnow have resulted due to breeding techniques.

These breed easily scattering their eggs among the plants and substrates in the ornamental fish bowl. The eggs hatch after two days and the babies are fed with feed powder and infusoria. Babies can be kept with the parents. However the increased demand for oxygen must be taken care of.

If the ornamental bowl is large up to 5 white cloud can be kept in it. These fish are omnivores and consume formulated feed like flakes and pellets. White cloud mountain minnows can be fed twice daily taking care that they are not over fed and no residual food is left behind in the ornamental bowl.
