White Cloud Mountain Minnow


White cloud mountain minnows are small, colorful fish, once termed “the working man’s neon” because they compared to neon tetras in color but were not as expensive. For over a half-century the white cloud mountain minnow was the only species in the newly defined genus. However, in 2001, two additional species found in Vietnam were recognized; Tanichthys micagemmae and Tanichthys thacbaensis. Of the two, only Tanichthys micagemmae (Vietnamese white cloud) is available in the aquarium trade.
