Australian Rainbowfish

Australian Rainbows are larger three inch schooling fish and have an irridescent pattern. We recommend good swimming space and a school of four or more. The aquarium should be at least 20 gallons for any larger rainbow. The larger rainbows from AquariumFishSale.com come from a pond breeder in Florida and tend to have better size and coloration than Asian bred rainbows.
