Red Neon Blue Eye Rainbowfish - Pseudomugil LUMINATUS
The Red Neon Blue Eyed Rainbowfish is one of the less commonly found blue eyed rainbowfish in the hobby. These brightly colored and active fish are one of the most popular among the Rainbowfish family and do well in groups. Great for planted tanks and with smaller nonaggressive inverts!
They don't get too big compared to other rainbowfish and cope well with nano sized fish.
Size is around 0.5 - 0.75 inches or so.
I ordered 3, one died the day after I got it. One came with the top 1/2 of it's tail missing but it has since grown almost completely back in the two weeks I've had them. They have colored up and are doing well now. I wish I knew if they were male or female though. Maybe when they get bigger I will be able to tell. Now that I know they will survive I plan to move them to a species only 20 gallon long and order 6-8 more. Hopefully whoever packs them up will send the appropriate male/female ratio for them to do well.
They came on time, actually earlier than expected, water was a great temp, all were happily swimming stress free in their shipment bags and have already started to show their color. I received very happy, active and healthy fish. Cant thank Ariel enough for recommending this place!
