Just so you know, there are two species of red rainbows that are commonly available. My preference is the Millenium rainbow (Glossolepis Pseudoincisus). You will also find the Irian rainbow fish...

As you can see from my tank, I am pretty biased to having lots of rainbows, so of course I would say 4 red rainbows. In a 6' tank, you have plenty of room.
Just so you know, I keep only male...

My rainbows never stay still, and cruise the tank side to side constantly. There is always motion in the tank. In fact, trying to get a still camera shot of a rainbow is a very tough task, because...

That's interesting that you say that. I've always considered mine a fish tank with plants, not a planted tank with fish. My plants do well, but grow very slowly.
I'm always jealous when I see...

It depends on the species. Most take between one and two years to get to a mature size. But they usually start showing some pretty good color within 6 months or so.
It is really hard to find...

Thanks for the nice compliment. I saw your other journal thread, and your tank is very nice as well.
I've been considering adding C02, but haven't made the jump yet.

Here you go. I find rainbows to be very hardy. My oldest are about 7 years old.

I've been keeping rainbows or years. I sometimes add new very small rainbows to grow out, maybe 1.5 to 2" in length. I've never had one of the adult rainbows try to eat one.
As you know, rainbows...
Are you saying that Boesemani Rainbow Fish aren't colorful?
What do you mean by "full color" ones? I've got a tank full of Rainbows and they make for a beautiful tank. Let me know if you have...
Iíve been keeping Rainbow fish for years. They are a hardy fish, and very, very rarely have I ever lost one.
That is, except for the Praecox. For whatever reason, Praecox are the least hardy of...

The ones that are silver/yellow as juveniles will be silver/yellow as adults. They won't change into blue/orange. Still nice, but I prefer the blue/orange. I know this from experience and years and...

Here's a pic of one of my 6 year old Boesemani's.

I've got a little different view than those above.
I have a 70 tall (4ft tank) with 14 Rainbows, plus 3 Roseline sharks, and a few others.
Tank is heavily filtered, with good water movement and...
I know this may not be popular....but I gotta be honest. I bring them home, net them out of the bag, and toss them in. I'm more concerned about not adding the LFS water to my tank than how the fish...
I've had two of them for over two years. They work great and look great too.
Here's a picture of mine in the tank. I run two Rena XP3's, two Smartheaters, and two power heads. They cost a little...
I'm not sure exacty which one you are referring to. Here's a list of the varieties I keep. They are actually much brighter and more colorful in person than in the video.
I don't chime in here too often, but was browsing and your post caught my eye.
I keep a mostly Rainbow tank. Don't be concerned about mixing them, as they all get along very well. I prefer a few...

The Denisonii are the most active. They are in constant motion, and do go everywhere. Makes it very difficult to get a picture!
Of course, the rainbows are very active too. They do tend to stay in...

Both are colorful, active, and peaceful fish.
I say get some of each. You won't be sorry.
Here are pics of a couple of mine:
And here is one of their friends.....
Just a few assorted pics of a few bows from my tank. They are all a little over a year old and maturing up nicely.
The are Roseline Sharks, sometimes called Denison Barb (Puntius denisonii).
They are a wonderful community fish. Constant cruisers who don't bother anyone.
First time posting a video. Still learning and would like to get better quality via Youtube. Any tips would be appreciated.
