So, I did an experiment and tried to get some of my turquoise rainbows to breed, and they did! I noticed about a dozen fry swimming around, so I extracted the parents from the breeding tank, which I previously had been using for quarantine. Right away I noticed that one of the fry was quite a bit larger than the others. I thought that was strange but I figured maybe he hatched first, was a fast grower, or something like that. Now that my fry have grown bigger they just don't look like the fish that used to be larger than them. I'm thinking maybe the fish I had in quarantine, two adult giant danios, may have been spawning without me noticing? These are the rainbow fry. Looking very rainbowish to me (forgive my bad pics): And here's the weird guy: Could these be the same kind of fish?
Hello! For weeks I have been reading countless blogs, searching forums, watching more hours of fishtube then I’d like to admit on the topic, etc. trying to decide how to solve a predicament I’ve found myself in. I have a 40 gallon breeder tank with a handful of super chill black mollies, 5 peppered corys, and one turquoise rainbow. I do weekly water changes consistently, run a Aquaclear 70 and a sponge filter as well. Now that I am a much more informed aquarist, I have discovered that the majority of the internet says the smallest tank size for turquoise rainbows is a 55 gallon. I’d like to get more same species rainbows so the one I have can thrive even better (as I inherited only one). It’s very active, younger and healthy - just want it to be in the best environment possible . Do I get a few more turquoise rainbows or try to rehome the one I currently have? Thanks in advance for any advice! I am super appreciative!!
