    Default Rare pure strain Australian rainbowfish!

    So I networked over last few months with an admin of a Rainbowfish group and turns out she lives in FL only few hours drive from Imperial.

    So we've been working with her on rainbows I've had her walk through what I'm doing and look at my breeding stock,give me tips on breeding,hatch out etc pretty awesome resource lol

    So her and Gary Lange work together on species he brings into the states and gives to trusted breeders to help circulate the new strains into the hobby without losing the genetics from hybridizing like it often does in the commercial side of fish production. So Imperial and Valleys are the only farms being provided fish to work with and it feels crazy that I'm involved in this.

    Recently we started featuring on our website some of her fish from her breeding room and I'd like to share with all of you since these are rare Australian rainbows never before available in the U.S. I'll leave a link if you want to check the price etc.

    First one I managed to get some video working on the rest lol


    This is Melanotaenia splendida inornata "Adelaide River"

    Second we have Melanotaenia "Upper Katherine River"


    The species was supposedly known as australis but recently the researchers who collected these noted on the Facebook rainbowfish group they are in fact not australis and Peter Unmack DNA tested them and confirmed this and findings concluded at most they are in the splendida complex. So I just thought how awesome it is to be able to easily communicate with the folks who actually collected the fish and do the work to describe and publish them!

    These are possibly my favorite they have alot of color and look like in the right conditions would be ridiculously colorful makes me want to setup a species only just to see.

    I'll work on video the holding tank in my breeding room isn't the best for lighting.

    Third we have Melanotaenia utcheensis

    Fourthly soon to be available Melanotaenia splendida "Deepwater Creek"


    These are in a pond right now breeding away so in a few months we can net the pond and hopefully get a nice yield :)
