One of the rarest of the Rainbow fish. These were discovered in 1989 by Gerald Allen and up until very recently they have been impossible to find in the Aquarium trade. During recent weeks they have turned up in at least two fish shops due to fish now becoming available from breeders in the Czech Republic.
They originate from Lake Kurumoi in West Papua.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
The males have strong colouration compared to the females which are rather drab. Whilst we do not have any details of the breeding conditions needed to achieve spawning success, it should not be too dissimilar to the conditions required for most of the melanotaenia species.
Preferred water conditions for breeding are likely to be neutral to hard water that is alkaline. Keep the breeding tank well planted( java moss is ideal) as the fish will scatter their eggs upon them and as soon as they have spawned remove the eggs to a separate rearing tank. As soon as the fry are free swimmimg feed them on infusoria and then other suitable fry foods such as baby brine shrimp.
