  9. Breeding:

    • White Cloud Mountain Minnows are relatively easy to breed.
    • Egg scatterer. Prefers to breed in small aquarium (5 to 10 gallons). Does not typically eat eggs or fry if well fed. Likes to "feel at home" in aquarium before breeding. Put a group of 6 to 10 in an aquarium for 6 months and with plants like mosses or guppy grass and fry should begin to appear spontaneously, so long as they cannot be sucked up into filter or siphon during cleanings. With adequate filtration and plants, cleanings may be delayed to allow fry to grow to size safe to resume regular maintenance. Sponge filtration is highly recommended.

  10. Health Monitoring:

    • Observe for signs of stress, disease, or changes in behavior.
    • Quarantine new additions to prevent potential diseases.
