Hi Can anyone please ID this fish? I think it's a rainbowfish but I'm not sure what type, it does look like pictures I've seen of dwarf rainbowfish but I'm not sure! It's about an inch and a half long. Thanks!
Yup, my faves although I don't keep them anymore. Dwarf Neon Rainbow fish, this looks like a female (yellow/orange fins - bit tricky to see the colours) males have blood red fins and get slightly more deep bodied.
Grows to about 6cm, shoaling, so an absolute min of 6 but do far better in groups of 10 or more IMHO. Prefers neutral to slightly harder water up to pH 7.5. A good sized shoal can be housed in 120 litres as a species tank only.
Please fill in your personal profile if you are posti
Thanks for the info Violet They really are beautiful fish. Two of them came within the big tank full I recently 'aquired' and now I've got the stocking issues sorted out (thanks for your help with that as well!! ) I'm wanting to get them some companions but needed to be sure exactly what they are!
