Rhodeus rheinardti is a tropical freshwater fish belonging to the Acheilognathinae subfamily of the family Cyprinidae. It originates in the Perfume River, near Hué, Vietnam. It was originally described as Danio rheinardti by G. Tirant in 1883. When spawning, the females deposit their eggs inside bivalves, where they hatch and the young remain until they can swim.[2]
