Iriatherina werneri (Featherfin Rainbowfish)

A very variable species, different colour morphs are known from different areas. Typically the body is pearly pink with blue tones, and the fins white, red, or yellow. Mature males have large fan-like first dorsal fins and second dorsal and anal fins with greatly extended fin rays. Females lack these extended fin rays. Maximum size is also variable, with 5 cm being reported for wild fish, but most aquarium specimens


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Wild fish live in still and slow moving waters thick with vegetation. Typically, the water is soft and slightly acidic. Feeds on plankton, algae and tiny invertebrates. Wild caught fish invariably have brighter colours than captive bred fish, and this is likely down to issues with diet. Use a variety of foods, and try to mimic the natural diet as closely as possible for best results.

Basic care similar to Australian rainbowfish. Keep in a roomy aquarium with a mix of open swimming areas and shady planted areas. A schooling fish, keep in groups of not less than six specimens. Include an equal mix of male and female specimens to prevent fights and to encourage the males to display.
