The Rasbora trilineata or Scissor Tail Rasbora is also called the Three Lined Rasbora in some places The Scissor Tails have a forked tail (caudal fin) that has black and white markings on it that are similar to the dorsal fin on the pristella tetra There is a horizontal black bar on the mid section that runs the length of the body The forked tail gives them a unique swimming style that is the reason for the common name

Their tail makes an opening and closing scissor like motion while swimming If you're looking for a nice, easy going community fish for the top parts of your freshwater fish tank this Scissor Tail Rasbora may be for you They will bring lots of activity to the top levels of your aquarium and should not bother any of their tank mates

Feeding the Scissor Tail Rasbora should not pose a problem since they will take flakes, frozen and freeze dried foods They especially like freeze dried blood worms, but don't over do it A little bit of the freeze dried bloodworms goes a long way and only give them this food as a treat every once in a while

A good quality flake food should serve as the main part of the Scissor Tail Rasbora's diet.
