In my area they sell the most common rainbows like the millennium red, boesmani, and turquoise all at juvi sizes. Since i wanted variety and more not so common ones i had to aquabid them . You should buy from this guy if you do his name is Snookn. Fish are nice healthy QTd before hand and the fish come calm his pakaging skillz are superb and he has a nice variety.110g All Male Peacock/Hap Tank

I agree, Snookn has great rainbows. I ordered 12 from him @ 6 for 36.00 plus shipping. I haven't lost any fish. they school with my australian rainbows.

I ordered mine from AquaBid. Mine were shipped priority mail for $9. Only problem is when they are very young, they can't be sexed until their colors come out. I have one pair of turquoise and 2 male boesemani and they are fine together. I gave all my others to my son but had several more. You can also keep an all male rainbow tank.
Another rainbow I like is a large school of neon rainbows. They stay small and are neat in large groups.

When they were young did any of the get eaten in your tank? What other fish did you have in it? Thanks for the link!

Bows are really small when young and are slow growers. At the time, all I had in the tank was tetra's so just turned the babies loose in their tank. They were fine.
But one time I had a new spawn in the breeder tank and turned them loose with large bows much sooner than I probably should have. Surprising, they were not eaten either. They were in the breeder about 3 months but I had oddles of hiding spaces, too.
