The Yellow Rainbowfish is a peaceful shoaling species that is ideally suited to the community aquarium, and should be kept in groups of 6 or more fish. The aquarium should be at least 4ft long, as this is an active species that needs swimming space. As with many other Rainbowfish species, the juveniles can look comparatively drab to the absolutely stunning adult fish, and so are all too often overlooked in the shops. However, once settled into the security of the planted aquarium, these young specimens will soon begin to colour up, revealing their true adult beauty. Yellow Rainbowfish will not bother smaller tankmates, as their mouth/throat is too narrow to be able to swallow them. This fish is also suitable for aquariums of a slightly cooler temperature, as it can cope with quite a broad range within its natural distribution area. May also be seen on sale as the Lake Tebera Rainbowfish.
