This is a new colour form of Melanotaenia duboulayi rainbow. It comes from a creek in south central coastal Queensland.
The temperature tolerance of this fish is not as wide as the Dawson rainbow, however it will survive at normal room temperature. A heater will not be necessary in the average home aquarium.
This is the first commercial production of this fish.
This is probably the northern most Doublayi rainbow. It comes from a small creek system in Central Coastal Queensland. They will tolerate a wide temperature range from about 11c to over 40c.
Its colour changes dramatically as it reflects light. One moment it is green, then blue then its most spectacular colour... bright yellow.
Keeping and caring for rainbowfishes in captivity is reasonably simple as far as general aquarium conditions are concerned. They are one of the easiest fishes to maintain in captivity.
They also possess all the attributes we look for in aquarium fishes.
Ease of breeding, hardy, beautiful colours, peaceful disposition and they won't destroy your plants or move the gravel around in your aquarium.
They come in a variety of sizes to suit almost any community aquarium. Rainbowfishes have very similar breeding habits, their food requirements are similar, and water that suits one particular species will suit all.
All are of good-natured temperament and will live harmoniously, more or less, with one another.
