I have a 50 gallon aquarium tank with 3 sterbas cory catfish 9 red reasboras and 9 green rasboras (I believe they are both harlequin family)
I would like to add 9 more rasboras in a different color possibly yellow/gold. (I have seen them in pictures) I have tried several aquarium supplier but no one seems to be able to confirm that I would actually get my color when ordering the rasboras. Are the harlequin rasboras only one color?
I am a bit confused. Any information would be appreciated
Thanks

Green rasboras sound like microdevario kubotai
Red rasboras... could be either chili rasboras or red harlequin rasboras.
If you are looking for another in a different tone, check out purple harlequin rasboras, or maybe boraras urophthalmoides.

I do suggest upping your sterbai corydoras to at least 6 though for them to be more happy. More even better.

Harlequin rasboras come in a couple colour mutations. Normal, red, and purple (black) being some of them.

Could get glowlight rasboras as well, they look similar but slightly smaller and have a smaller black mark than the harlies do.


My own purple harlies. Theyre a nice looking colour morph

Thanks
we could not get 3 more sterbai. we are now waiting for 3 julii catfish anytime.
we are also having a problem getting the purple rasboras harlequin. Our local supplier calls them black: are they the same? We saw some beautiful gold/ yellow rasboras online. Somehow our local places are not familiar with these.
It has been frustrating trying to get different color rasboras: we are confused because apparently there is quite a selection online.
Any suggestion is appreciated

aquahuna frequently have sterbai at a resonable price and shipping is a flat $12. they come and go so you have to check - they also sell some different types of rasbora; again inventory frequently changes.
