    Thumbs up Rainbows are coming


    0 Not allowed!
    I have a dozen turquoise (Melanotaenia lacustris) and a dozen boesemani's (M. boesemani) heading my way to add to the 6 unidentified bows I got at PetSmart a couple weeks ago. Those were only listed as Australian rainbows but aren't they all? I think they are M. Australis but not definate yet. I do have about 50 fry from them already.

    In addition, I will have some M. Maccullochi in a couple weeks when they grow a bit more. I finally will have my bow tank!

    These are NOT my fish. But here are some pictures of those I will have.

    Hobbsy,
    Finished up my 220 planted rainbowfish tank some months ago. They are great, beautiful, active fish. You'll really dig them when the all grow and color up. There are species rainbowfish in the hobby that come from both Australia and New Guinea, so they actually aren't all from just Australia. New Guinea has species Australia lacks, and vice versa.

    Great! Just as I am getting all excited you burst my bubble by telling me you have yours in a 220 gallon! wahhhhhhhhh

    LOLOL They really are neat looking fish. I think of the ones I'm getting, the Macculochi is the neatest looking. Those fins all tipped in red look like lace.

    Bout time you got your bow tank!


    Are rainbows aggressive fish? I had one in with a mix of other fish back before I knew squat about aquariums, and it was pretty cool.

    They are when you keep them alone, in pairs or trios, Drum. It's so unnatural to them, they get so nervous they have spurts of high aggression. Hobbs has her orders right, with dozens of fish of her species.

    Hobbsy,
    Have to have the size because I keep 42 Glossolepis incisus, and the males reach six inches each. Keep them with a bunch Melanotaenia praecox and four dozen Iriatherina werneri. Bunch of Botia haunt the bottom realm
    Remembered your Boseman's are from New Guinea, not Australia.

    Hoping because they are all Melanotaenia that they will be OK but if not, those will have to be kept with my tetra's.
