Notes

Red Axelrodi are commonly known as Sundadanio Axelrodi Red.  They prefer softer water conditions and should be kept in large groups to feel comfortable and safe, so aim for more than 8 if possible.  Although they can get by in a 5 gallon tank, 10 gallons is recommended for a good shoal effect.  Keep water parameters stable as they’re sensitive to fluctuations and nitrates.
