Can the rainbowfish live together with goldfish?

    They can if you filter are doing their job and you are extra diligent in the tank maintenance. Goldfish produce large amouts of amonia which is toxic for most fish in large amounts.

Bosemani rainbow question: I'm an experienced keeper, considering making some tank changes. Need to know what is reasonable for adult Bows concerning tank size. They're 4 to 6 years old.

    How many are you planning on keeping. They need a bit of space. 30 gallon will be good for 3 or 4. They need the length to swim.

It's me again. Would love to know what tips anyone would have to entice these two to spawn, the male is certainly eager to :)

    Found this quote on another website. "An egg layer, Glossolepis incisus spawns throughout a number of days over moss. The adults should be removed after spawning and the eggs should be raised and hatched separately. The fry should be fed very small live foods."

    You need to sort of replicate the flood season.  Try adding some cooler water. Lots of plants and heavy nutrient rich feedings.

    They are beautiful active fish with a great blue color. My pH is 7.2 and the temp is 80. They also get along with other community fish great!

    These fish are great! My local fish store had one lonesome Madagascar Rainbow, so I bought him and he is a delight. Begs at the front of the tank, very active, very agile almost acrobatic..and most of all, very peaceful. He lives in a 95 gal with 7 Boesmani Rainbows, tetras, gouramis, loaches etc. I have been looking for more, but with no luck, They seem to be pretty rare.

    I have a tank of 30 inch planted which houses 16 bosemans rainbow, it's a delight to watch them, especially when they change colors from noon time.
    Happy fish keeping.

      that is wayyy too small consider upgrading
    • Jeremy Roche - 2012-04-17
      For 16 full grown you need a much bigger tank. 75 gallon tank would work well.

    I have had my Madagascan Rainbowfish for a while now and although they are pretty rare, are very good for a beginner with a tank of 30 gallons.

      As long as you keep pristine water they are very easy. They aare however very sensitive to change.
