The Daisy's Blue Rice (Oryzias woworae) is a species of Ricefish originating in Indonesia. This fish is characterized by its small size, blue iridescent body, large blue eyes, and splashes of red along their fins.
The Daisy's Blue Ricefish is an extremely hardy fish often suitable for the beginner aquarist. This nano aquarium fish only grows to approx. 1 inch in length, making them a great addition to aquariums as small as 10 gallons. This species is schooling and does best in groups of 6+. They prefer water temperatures in the range of 74-81 degrees Fahrenheit and do best with a pH between 6.5-7.5.
This fish stands out and flourishes in a planted aquarium setting. They are not picky eaters but do best on a diet of dried or frozen foods. Vegetation should also be provided.
This species is very peaceful and is compatible with most other peaceful community fish, but it is important that the Daisy's Blue Ricefish be kept with other nano species. Do not keep it with fish that are much larger or very energetic. This fish is safe to keep with snails and dwarf shrimp species.
