    The striped ones look like Banded Rainbows.

    My first thought was female boesemani but now not sure at all. And my favorite rainbow site that identifies them all has a dead link.

    I wonder if it's an Australian splendid but not all the way into color yet. They act very nuts.

    Is that yours ? im thinkning it may be one of those ! they did seem kind of dull at the LFS and have not really changed much in my tank. I got them because i seem the one in you pic at a dentist office and knew he wasnt a boe and when i was looking at the rainbows at the lfs those where the only two that looked like that so i got them. hopefully when i re enter my driftwood and plant the tank their colors will come out like that . Those stripes on the tail are exactly who they look on mine not too sure if you can see it in the vid.

    Common on the market. Check the Australian in this link. Colored more like yours.

    my guess is a Trifasciata green phase Rainbow.

    I don't think so. The Trifasciata has a black band running down his side and a definite greenish coloration. (Banded rainbow)

    I saw the Australian at PetSmart yesterday. Same thing as the OP's.

    the species to which I am referring is a completely different form of trifasciata. It is very akin to the australian rainbow. The one you list is a Goyder River rainbow, I believe. But, I may be wrong..... I'm dying to know myself, now.

    Looks like a Male Yellow (Axelrodi) Rainbow
