hambone870 Kudos for excellent documenting

Fun first time read even if I'm jumping in late. The full progression of fry to fish in 5 mins

Great job raising em up!

Rob in Puyallup I'm gonna be looking for a new home for them sooner or later. It's been fun watching them develop!

Grah the great
If it's a boesmani...

You're going to need a much larger tank. Boesmani are active, 4 inch long schooling fish and a 6 gallon will never cut it for them. Might want to invest in getting another tank before they get cramped.

Wonderful surprise by the way!

EddyBearr I definitely think Melanotaenia Goldiei. It's the black stripe that gives it off.

Apparently, "A very healthy fish, very prolific, and fry are quite strong."

Rob in Puyallup I'd be very pleased with some of those. Very nice!

Now that they're coloring up, I'm wanting to say Boesemani Rainbow (Melanotaenia boesemani)?

Rob in Puyallup A photo of this mysterious fish this morning.

Rainbows of some sort. Any ideas out there?

The fry are still growing and coloring up.

From tonight. Any new ideas as to the species?

farrenator The finnage certainly looks like it belongs to a rainbowfish.
