Seattle_Aquarist Hi p.lewis,

Gary Lange, one of the world recognized 'bow explorers, collectors, and breeders did a talk at the Michigan Cichlid Assn in March, 2012. Here is a post he put on their forum and some pictures of the rare and unique species that he brought with him and made available to club members. Some of the members of that club may have some fry available. You will find Gary on the Rainbowfish forums and he occasionally sells his 'bows on AquaBid.

Rainbowfish

Hi, all!

I just moved to SE Michigan, but I have been keeping a few planted tanks for about 6 years.

I'm looking for anybody local who keeps Rainbowfish, especially specimins with good genetics that aren't the common stuff the wholesalers have. I would like to get some juveniles or eggs to try raising a few more species.

Right now I have 3 Melanotaenia Splendida and 7 Melanotaenia Herbertaxelrodi.

If there's anybody local who can hook me up, that'd be awesome. If I get the M. Herbertaxelrodi to spawn, I could trade those. I doubt anybody wants any Splendids.

When it gets into late spring and the air is warmer, I may look into getting some eggs from out of state by mail, but I'd rather start up some new tanks with some new species now if I can.
