    Hi guys.

    Just heard back from the main importer for the South Island of New Zealand, and they say they are only able to get a few of these Rainbows.

    Glossolepis incisus -Red Rainbowfish
    Melanotaenia affinis -New Guinea Rainbow
    Melanotaenia boesmani -Boesmans Rainbow
    Glossolepis wanamensis -Emerald rainbow
    Melanotaenia goldiei -Goldie River Rainbow
    Melanotaenia lacustris -Turquoise Rainbow
    Melanotaenia splendida rubrostriata -Red-Striped Rainbow

    It is really gutting. I wished i could have some words with the who are in charge of importing fish.


    Well I can only get the Red Rainbow-fish Turquoise Rainbow Boesmans Rainbow And lastly Thread Fin Rainbows, and Dwarf Rainbows, and other species of the small Rainbows. Just not many of the Papua New Guinea ones.

    Well now I am going to have to sort out a new list of fish for my 100 gallon tank. I was wanting the Kutubus and these Glossolepis wanamensis. But I cant get the Glossolepis wanamensis. Gutting.

    So I think I am stuck with the Boesmans Rainbow Red Rainbowfish to choose from along with the Kutubus. Ohh before I forget apparently i can get the Spledid Rainbows!!! I wouldn't mind these fish.

    Well just thought I would let every-one know the terrible news.

    Watch those splendida ones I bought three the other week oh they were fast swimmers... swam after everything. manic swimmers. now maybe I managed to buy just those hyper fish. I know they are supposed to be peaceful but the splendida are not going to swim like gouramis. Try some discus they will fill up your tank. But I know rainbows are beautiful fish.

    That's too bad when you can't get the fish you want to keep. I understand whole-heartedly. I can't find squat around here.

    I'm sure your Plan B will be just as outstanding though.
    8 tanks running now:
    1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
    Gouramis, barbs, rasboras, plecos, corys, tetras, fancy guppies, swordtails, ottos, rainbow shark, upside-down catfish, snails, and Max and Sparkles the bettas.

    Thanks mate. I hope to get my second plan to work out just as good as the first.

    Thanks WT. I shall try and work things out. The main thing is I will have to be even more careful with my fish choosing.

    Thanks mate. Yes these fish can be quite the speedy type. But IMO I think I should have no trouble at all. That is if I do get them. More than likely I wont.


    What I am thinking of is the Kutubus as the main school, and some other school of Rainbows. It is just what type. I still like the Iran Reds. I also like the Boies. So HMMM. I guess the only way to solve this problem is to just do a lot of researching, on the ups and downs with these fish.

    They have started banning the import of many rainbows due to the over-harvesting of them.

    I had to separate my Splendida from my turquoise and boesemani. They get larger, are far more active and were taking over the tank. However, your tank is larger than mine which makes a big difference. For some reason, they settled right down under subdued lighting and were placed alone. Go figure.

    oh that was a fun utube video. Now what an idea for a 75 once the discus breed. yes..all those rainbows. They look good with rummy noses. The fishstore here has a big tank with rummynoses and rainbows.I suppose they would do well in 6.5 ph.

    The only trouble IMO with that video was that the tank was way over stocked with the Rainbows. So IMO I would limit the amount you would keep in the tank. Other wise Rummy Nose and the Rainbows would look great.
