Larger Rainbowfish Species


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am trying to find a larger species of rainbowfish for our 180G that gets to be around 5”, give or take some. The only one that I can think of would be one of locations for the Melanotaenia trifasciata. If any of you rainbow aficionados have suggestions they would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for the suggestions! I’ll start looking up the Madagascar’s, here’s the list I have so far. I think I’m leaning towards numbers 4 & 5 but I doubt I’ll find any vanheurni.

  1. Melanotaenia trifasciata [Rocky Bottom Creek, Goyder River, NT]
  2. Melanotaenia trifasciata blyth river
  3. Melanotaenia trifasciata pappan creek
  4. Chilatherina bleheri
  5. Melanotaenia vanheurni
  6. Melanotaenia boesemani
