    Default Melanotaenia praecox

    Yip the Rainbow bug is continuing here in the house... after the sucess with the furcatus and their non stop breeding I picked up some baby Melanotaenia praecox yesterday - they are still only about 0.7 inches but are already showing some amazing colors... I don't think a foto could so them justice - everytime they move you get a glint of purple, blue, turquoise, silver, yellow and then bright red fins.. very true these are rainbow fish.

    In character they meshed straight away with the rest and show no timidness at all...they settled in faster than I have seen any other fish... as soon as they were let lose they straight away went on a food hunt.

    Here's one of the new babies


    Hope you like them...

    The color doesn't change much as they grow, though the fins may show better color. I had a group in a 55 as dithers for cichlids a couple years back. About that time I was setting up a 10 gallon for cherry shrimp, and found a single tiny fry had been sent along with the shipment of shrimp and plants. About a week or two later, another one turned up in the tank, apparently there had been a couple eggs on the plants. Eventually they grew large enough to ID, and I was pleasantly surprised to find they were more praecox rainbows. They eventually joined the group in the 55.
