Offering Melanotaenia splendida «Inornata» (Checkered Rainbowfish).
Found in swamps, lagoons, streams and rivers, checkered rainbowfish prefer an aquarium with plentiful vegetation to provide them with cover akin to their natural habitat. Growing to a size of approximately 6 inches, they are peaceful, active fish tank lids are essential to prevent them jumping. Typically rainbowfish feed from insects at the waters surface, and should accept flake food along with frozen, live food to maintain their health and colouration. House them with other peaceful tank inhabitants, avoiding predatory or aggressive fish such as cichlids.
