Yellow Axelrodi Rainbowfish

The yellow rainbowfish is one of the larger rainbowfish and similar in size and behavior to the emerald and red rainbowfish. Males are much more colorful than the females but will only display their full color in the presence of a female, so we recommend the purchase of a pair. If ordering only one, we will provide a male unless a female is requested.
