Thanks for asking, Binbin.

Still thinking they're P. furcatus. They do have markings down their sides, so I can't be positive. They are slow growing, so not entirely sure that the water parameters are really right for them.

I'll post new pics as soon as I can.

Thanks for waking up this thread, bud!

Pseudomugils are my favorites! They are wonderful fish, feisty and personable. My gertrudaes bred easily, but I didn't have a set up to keep the babies in. The adults would find and eat them within a couple days.

The finnage certainly looks like it belongs to a rainbowfish.

1st off, how neat to get such an awesome surprise!!

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