Nice couple! Would make a nice motive for a Valentines Card! By the way, I have a couple, too, in my 125 g.

Looks very good. Probably a dumb question, but do females show spawning stripes, too, or just males?

Just the male. They pick the spawning spot and will stick close to it trying to lure the female to the "chosen" spot. He will stay in the same area for hours waiting for her. If she doesn't come around soon, he gets mad at her and goes after her a bit then rushes back to the spot.

He then flashes his colors to warn others away. As soon as she spawns, she leaves the area, too. The boesemani only shows a whitish/yellow head when he's ready to spawn but these guys go from yellow to orange and sometimes even red.

They're nice rainbows to have. I had the Splendia and didn't like them at all.
