Melanotaenia pygmaea Pygmy Rainbowfish
Rare. Personally Bred. My breeders came from Eric Bodrock which his came from Gary Lange. My tank parameters are around pH 7.4-8+ TDS 300-500+ Temp 72-76 F. I ship on Tuesday this is the best time for them to travel.. Hobbyist Bred.
Scientific Name: Melanotaenia pygmaea
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.
