Seeing these mature they are now one of my favorites they have gorgeous color and I love the way they swim and interact with conspecifics.

That is a very pretty rainbow, gets big though. I would love to add some dwarf blues to the tank.

Fairly slow grower though I've had mine for about 4-5 months and hasn't even gained an inch of growth.

The link Joe posted said 80-100mm. That's 3.15"-3.9". Not too big for my 100 gallon tank at all :wink: , especially considering the body shape.

Are you considering getting some, Laura? They are so very pretty! They would surely be fun to watch in your 100g.

I want to upgrade my filtration before I add more stock. But, yes. Where did you get yours?

From a friend of mine who raised rainbows for 20+ years and still has connection on the farm he worked at :P

So I can just ask him if he can score any more

It would be a good choice. They are easy to care for.
