Also known as the Jewel Rainbowfish they can achieve 10-13 cm (3.9-5.1").
An active yet peaceful Rainbowfish that does best in groups of its own kind, making sure to keep more females than males. Will happily co-habit with similar sized peaceful fish, but they should not be mixed with other species of Rainbowfish.
Feed once or twice a day, they accept most small meaty foods such as brine shrimp, bloodworm and daphnia, pellet and flake foods. May also pick at small snails.
This fish does best in a well matured tank with dense planting, and some open swimming space, which is well filtered. Temperature of 25-30°C (77-86°F) is ideal.
