Long Fin White Cloud Minnow
White cloud minnows are popular and hardy schooling fish and found throughout the Global aquatic community. Unfortunately these fish may be extinct in the wild. Like many Asian species, the white clouds are kept in existence by our hobby alone. The fish was discovered on White Cloud Mountain in China during a boy scouting trip by a boy scout named Tan. Hence the scientific name Tanichthys. Long fin white clouds take a lot of selective breeding to produce the long fins, which begin to grow out as the fish grows to maturity.
