    Scientific Name: Melanotaenia pygmaea

       Ease of Care: Easy

       Approximate Full Size: 2 inches
       Native Region: Australia
       Temperament: Peaceful

    This Australian native is a small fish, getting to be only about 1.5 inches long and it likes to have high water flow so a strong filter system will go far in making the pygmy rainbow feel at home. The male rainbow will be more colorful than the female, as with most fish.
