    Default Emerald Rainbows alive & well & mating!

    Hi All, I am new to the site but wanted to contribute. Mac wrote around a month ago about the fish that are becoming difficult to impossible to find. One was Glossolepis wanamensis -Emerald rainbow. Before moving to No. Nevada US, I lived near Las Vegas where there were a couple good fish stores. At that time I added a pair of Emerald Rainbows to my collection. They have become active breeders and I have probably two dozen in my nursery tank. At birth they were the size of eye lashes. Now at 6 months they are still little, but thriving and growing in their own time. It is a thrill to be blessed with a breeding pair, with their numbers nearly extinct. I wish I could get these placed in experienced hands when they grow up, but dont' know how to move them safely.

    I will be putting up some photos over the weekend of the male in his splendid breeding colors. Is anyone else having successful breeding of rainbows? I would love to hear your system. Mine favor laying eggs on hornwort. The fry are fed a special powder fry food by Mike Reed; it can be purchased online. The powder circulates through the tank for several hours so the fry always have something available.

    I welcome hearing from anyone who is keeping & raising Rainbows, and has suggestions for improved ways of doing anything.

    Thx, Carsonfishgirl

    Thank your for your great news. I am not jealous. But pleased. I hope they survive nicely and you can find good homes for them. For me if I were in your position i would set up as many tanks as you can start breeding on large scale. For me I would set up 20 ++++ to as many tanks needed in attempt to get these fish back on the market.

    I would love to see some pics.

    I have Kutubus who are breeding well. Just my Loaches eat the you very fast. I am getting a 80 gallon long tank made soon so I can breed them my self properly.

    Ohh by the way welcome to the forum.

    Be a responsible fish keeper! Study before buying!
    Never give in to impulse buying of Aquatic Fish.
