Common Name: Meteor Minnow, Chinese Danio, Canton Danio, White Cloud, White Cloud Mountain Fish
White cloud minnows are one of the easier fish to breed, simply due to the fact they rarely cannibalize their young. While most eggs and fry will normally be eaten or picked off by their hungry, uncaring parents, white cloud minnows will ignore the eggs and generally co-exist with the tiniest fry.
White clouds are some of the best fish I have ever had. They are also a great community fish. I have had mine for at least 9 months now and so far they have been great. They like basically any surroundings they are in and eat almost anything u feed them. ( Live or flakes - whatever! lo) anyway, finishing up - get some white clouds. Best fish ever. From: Birdie

Old thread: But I had to add my 2c. This summer I experimented with fish in rain barrels using white clouds. I brought them in now after a summer of eating mosquitoes; they are attractive very easy to care for fish. They seem very happy in the 16 gallon aquarium home for the winter. FaustinaAlso known as the White Cloud Mountain Minnow, this fish originates from the gorges of the White Cloud Mountains of China. This easy-to-keep minnow will do well in the community aquarium with other peaceful fish. The hardy and colorful Golden White Cloud adapts well to less-than-perfect water conditions, making it an ideal choice for beginning aquarists.Although white clouds are compatible with other freshwater tropical fish,care must be taken with the temperature range. Most tropical fish requirea heater to ensure temperatures stay in the mid 70s, but this is the top of therange for the White Cloud. White Clouds can do quite well in a fish bowlor unheated aquarium. They should be kept in schools.White clouds have a simple beauty. With there coppery-orange lime running down their body, and their red fins, it is easy to see why they are so popular. In fact, they were once called the 'poor mans neon' because they have a similar size and body shape. They have also been a cheap fish, but neons, believe it or not, used to be fairly expensive compared to the 99 cent fish you see in stores today.White cloud minnows are one of the oldest fish in the hobby. Due to there small size and hardy nature, they are still very popular among aquarists today.The white cloud is not a picky fish. They have been bred in captivity for many, many, years, making them very adaptable to a wide variety of water parameters. They will do well in a tank as small as 10 gallons. They enjoy to have lots of hiding spaces, as with most fish. Live plants make exceptional additions to their tank, as well as artificial decor. If your tank is too bare they will spend most of their time stressed out and hiding. But remember, they are a shoaling fish, so you will need to keep a a group of them.
