The White Cloud Mountain minnow is a hardy species of freshwater fish and coldwater fish often kept in aquaria. The GWCMM is a unique fish in the way that it can withstand cold temperatures. This makes it ideal for unheated house tanks of all sizes. They are very docile when kept correctly. They are schooling fish and the males display to the females by opening their colorful fins. They do occasionally fight with other males but this rarely results in injury.
