    Jip. Boesmani Rainbows. They are seen every so often in the fish stores.

    Yup. Boesmani Rainbows.
    Should be fairly easy to get hold of

    Go for a big as group as possible.
    If there are too few, ime they get very quarrelsome.

    A tank full of various rainbows looks absolutely stunning

    I got 6 from Pezulu the other day for my pup tank, always wanted them but couldn't put them with the big fish
    They look amazing with the pups and keep my tank cycled all time

    IMO the king of the aquarium. Stunning fish grows to max 12cm and lives for about 9 years. Don't expect to see the bold colors when you get them from your lfs. They look a bit drab at first but soon the colors show up. I have boesimani, western and kutubus in my 4 ft. Never wanna replace them.199a440a9424740a0562dc4767e83f52.jpg
