Exclamation Point Rasboras (Boraras urophthalmoide) is an uncommon type of Rasbora fish. They have several names besides their common name such as Least Rasbora, Sparrow Rasbora, or Spice Rasbora. As a freshwater fish coming from Asia such as Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia, the natural habitat of Exclamation Point Rasboras is typically acidic and soft. They appear attractive with the dark horizontal exclamation point, hence the name. They have a colorful body with a wide range of colors like golden yellow and dark green.

Exclamation Point Rasboras (Boraras urophthalmoides) are generally considered easy to keep in a well-established aquarium.

Condition the breeding pair with live or frozen foods to encourage spawning. Females scatter adhesive eggs among fine-leaved plants, and the parents should be removed after spawning to prevent them from eating the eggs. Fry can be fed infusoria or commercially prepared fry food until they are large enough to consume microworms or newly hatched brine shrimp.

Exclamation Point Rasboras are not picky eaters and will accept a variety of foods in the aquarium. They should be fed a balanced diet that includes high-quality flake or pellet food supplemented with live or frozen foods such as daphnia, brine shrimp, and bloodworms. Variety is key to ensuring they receive adequate nutrition and remain healthy.
