Aquarium Size

The aquarium should be heavily planted around the sides and back and have plenty of open water for swimming. Hiding places would be appreciated. Woodwork and floating plants will make them feel comfortable.

Feeding Procedure

Easy to feed. It will readily accept just about anything offered. For the best condition and colours, offer regular meals of small live and frozen foods such as bloodworm, Daphnia and brine shrimp, along with dried flakes and granules.


Never offer more than they can consume in a few hours and remove any uneaten foods timely to prevent problems with water Qualities.

Breeding Procedure

Male Parkinson’s Rainbowfish will be slightly larger, deeper bodied, and will have more intense colors than the female.

They are egg scatterer. You’ll have to find a separate tank for spawning, It should have dim lighting and bunches of thin-leaved plants such as Java moss or some other spawning material. Adult species may eat the eggs anytime they have a chance to do this, so remove them from the tank right after the spawning is over. The eggs incubate for 24-36 hours, the juveniles start swimming in 3-4 days after this.
