True size of a dwarf neon rainbow
Thinking of getting 5 or 6 of these guys but in my tank I have already 8 bloodfins. Looked on YouTube and they look bigger than the 2in that every article lists. When they age do they get to 3in? Looking for an avg here. Don't want to go smaller than 2in but not much bigger than 3in.

what size is your tank? anyways, i think they go mostly up to 3inches but they don't go above 3in.
if you're looking for a little smaller rainbow, try threadfin or forktails. :)

Ya according to me the size "2in" is better for the rainbow fish.

Actually, neons are simply neon rainbows. There is no dwarf about them but they are often stated dwarfs in error. They simple are a small species of rainbow. They need to be stocked like all rainbows, more female to male ratio or all of the same sex.
