    I have read a lot of conflicting literature on the web and print about how Rainbowfish either enjoy minimum or decent water flow. Which is it?

    The fish in question are turquoise rainbows

    Thank you

    They won't like it strong but a decent current is fine. I don't know which one they prefer though. To be honest, it probably isn't extremely important.

    The turquoise rainbows come from Lake Kutubu, Papua New Guinea, so you really don't have to provide them with much current at all.

    Actually a larger tank than a 55 is best for rainbows. I also kept them in a 55 but they are fast swimmers and could really benefit from a 6 ft tank.

    If there is a problem with my posting this link you will not offend me removing it. It is one of the best rainbow fish sites on the web.

    I find it to be a real asset when looking for quality specimens and breeding information on these fantastic fish.

    winnyoy, please start your own thread to ask your questions

    You will get a lot better help that way
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    You should find out where your species is from (rivers, lakes etc.) and that will give you an idea on how much current to provide. Keep in mind that just because they may be river fish does not mean you need a huge powerhead to create a current. Too little current is okay, too much current creates problems.
