    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

      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.

    Are they easy to breed?

      The Rainbow fish is no where near as easy to bred as a molly or guppy. These fish spawn in very fast moving water and would need the current duplicated inorder to properly breed. If you set up the right environment you should be able to breed these fish. The difficulty is getting the tank right and the rest does its own thing.

    I must have found a great fish seller, since not only was the boeseman rainbow I bought gorgeously coloured, so were the other rainbow fish I bought! But in any case, this one is a wonderful addition to my rainbow tank. :)

      I am glad you found a good supplier cuz it is hard to find some reliable fish people that actually are willing to spend the time to care for their fish, help a person and actually know what they are doing. Good for you.

    I found a male and female at a local pet store and have had them in my 55g for a year. The male was 3 inches and showed great color even tho there wasn't other males in the tank. I would always see them schooling up with my roseline barbs. Unfortunately, I came home today and my male had died. I keep up with my tank with general maintence and haven't lost a fish out of the blue in the 2 years I've had the tank up. Has anyone else had this happen with the madagascar rainbows and what can cause it? Other fish seem to be fine. I did add 3 leopard corys a few days ago, but they are harmless. Thoughts?

      The Leopard Corydoras certainly did not cause the death of your Rainbowfish. At times, fish simply die, and there are no plausible explanations for why. Perhaps buy another one?

      Rainbows eat insects in their natural environment and swim close to the surface. They jump if they are startled or if they are hoping to catch an airborne insect.

      Because the are jumpers like many fish da ! Mine get really rambunctious at feeding so I dont walk away from my tank with the lid up .
