Tank compatibility[edit | edit source]

A schooling fish that does best in groups of 5-6 or more, be sure to have more females than males. Do well with other similar sized peaceful fish including other Rainbowfish, Danios and Corydoras. Best not kept with shy fish as they may be bothered by this fish's active nature.


Diet[edit | edit source]

Will accept most foods including pellet and flake as well as live/frozen food such as brine shrimp and bloodworm.


Feeding regime[edit | edit source]

Feed once or twice a day.


Environment specifics[edit | edit source]

Does best in a mature spacious tank which is well filtered and with some dense planting as well as open swimming space. They prefer a soft current and not too acidic.


Behaviour[edit | edit source]

An active mid-swimming schooling fish. Males will display to one another.


Identification[edit | edit source]

Typical high bodied and high-humped Rainbowfish shape. Can be mistaken for the larger Glossolepis incisus.
