Common name: Orange Java Medaka
Latin name: Oryzias javanicus
Origin: Natural throughout Peninsular Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. It arguably looks best in a display inspired by its natural habitat which could consist of a sandy substrate, some tree roots and a few handfuls of leaf litter. Planted aquaria are also suitable, though the majority of aquarium plant species will fail to thrive under brackish conditions. As micropredator Java Medaka feeds on small insects, worms, alo takes all types of frozen food, small pellets and flakes.
