Fish Id needed.


So I was in another lfs today, saw this little guy, no label nothing.

My friend said he came in as an assorted rainbow fish.

The body shape and fins of the Madagascar rainbow are different from your killie.

That's why I thought my friend was crazy when he said it was a rainbow! I was sure it was some sort of Killie fish!

They are asking 7.99 for him, I am unsure if this is a good price for the little dude or not. Never dealt with this type of Rainbow before

I'd buy him and all his little freinds for that
