Rated 5 out of 5 by merksy65 I bought two of these guys about 2 months ago for my 55 gallon tank, they where about 2 inches long, they share their home with 4 neon tetras, 5 white cloud, 5 green lantern and 4 Mollies.
the larger of the two (Bruce) is a little pushy with his buddy (Mick), keeping him to the left of the tank but on occasion you see them swimming around together for a little while until Bruce gets territorial and sends Mick packing, I've thought of moving Bruce to a separate tank but then his behavior is natural for that breed of fish and as long as he isn't bugging the others I can deal with a little real drama.
Bruce in about 4 inches long and Mick is 3 so I know who is getting fed better but again, Nature.
The Lanterns police their behavior as they where the first to be housed in the aquarium and have the numbers, I've seen them split the Rainbows up on a few occasions. they are very fast swimmers and get on well with the other breeds so I would say as long as you already have well established fish in your tank go ahead and get these too but only two if you have the room like a 55 + gallon tank and don't mind a little excitement.

I love these fish. I bought two of them, and they acclimated to the tank right away. I have had them for about two weeks and their color is showing through, just beautiful. My only warning, I put them with my african clawed frog and when I woke up today to feed them one was missing, frog must have ate him. I'm really sad now.

I love these fish. I have three of them because they are so good. They eat so much and they have grown a lot in the two months that I had them. I have them with two skirt tetras and they get along great.

I bought turquoise and boesemani rainbows and they are beautiful, healthy and flourishing fish. Of all the small tropical fish, I love the rainbows because they have the most brilliant color. and are very hardy.
