This listing is for one Japanese Rice fish(Platinum Medaka).

Platinum Medakas typically reach a size of around 4cm and have a lifespan of up to 5 years under proper care. They exhibit a remarkable tolerance to a wide range of temperatures, adapting from as low as 0 degrees to as high as 27 degrees Celsius. However, to ensure optimal health and well-being, it's advisable to maintain the following conditions:

  • Temperature: Ideally kept between 18°C – 24°C.
  • pH: Maintained within the range of 7.0 – 8.0.
  • General Hardness: Aim for a range of 50 – 300 ppm.

Platinum Medakas are highly compatible with other fish species in a community tank, particularly smaller varieties such as white clouds and danios. They also coexist well with goldfish and paradise fish, making them suitable for stocking in unheated aquariums and ponds.

There are several varieties of Medakas available, including moonlight, gold, orange, and the standard golden type. While their appearances may vary slightly, they generally share the same body shape and fin formation. The Golden type, characterized by its elongated, slender body and vibrant orange and yellow hues, is particularly popular among aquarium and pond enthusiasts.

With their hardy nature and forgiving tolerance to water quality fluctuations, Platinum Medakas are an excellent choice for both beginner and experienced fishkeepers alike, adding a touch of elegance and vibrancy to any tank or pond environment.

They are great for almost any freshwater aquarium as well.
