Immerse yourself in the beauty of these celestial creatures as they glide through your aquarium with elegance and charm.

Scientific Name: The Comet Red and White fish is scientifically known as Carassius auratus var. (Comet).

Water Quality:

  • Temperature: Maintain a cool and temperate environment with temperatures ranging from 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C).

Tank Mates:

  • Avoid Fin Nippers: To protect their long and flowing tails, avoid housing them with fin-nipping species.

Decorate the tank with driftwood, rocks, and artificial or live plants to offer hiding spots and create an aesthetically pleasing environment.
