Red Rainbow 3.5cm

Rainbowfish are a specialty tropical fish. Most people who keep rainbowfish have large tanks that are often occupied by nothing other than rainbowfish. That's because Rainbowfish grow quite large and most types of rainbowfish get along well together.

The Boesemani Rainbow originates from New Guinea and is not a beginner's fish.  It is also called a Boseman's Rainbow and a Bosemani Rainbow.  The front half of its body is greyish/blue and the back half is yellow.  Like most rainbows, it has two dorsal fins.  The rear dorsal fin and the anal fin are very broad.  Males are generally more colorful.  The Bosemani is a fast moving fish and should be kept in groups of 6 or more.  A large aquarium and regular water changes are essential.  Bosemani eat flake foods and freeze dried blood worms.  They also can be fed brine shrimp occasionally.
