Get Ready for Rainbowfish Eggs - from Gary himself
It occurred Gary that we should suggest that people get ready to hatch rainbowfish eggs also. Below are the fish that Gary has available. Not many but nice. If any fish are requested he needs the request by Wednesday evening so he can get them ready.
Melanotaenia sp “Wapoga Red Laser” – F-1 2 pair $80
3 groups available
3/4- 1.25 inch. Juveniles from this tank are now producing viable eggs. This fish is on the cover of April/May Amazonas German edition and will probably be on an American cover in the not too distant future. Your chance to get a new and undescribed rainbowfish
CHILATHERINA ALLENI “WAPOGA RIVER” – Juveniles 1.5+” 2 pair for $80
MELANOTAENIA SP ( LUBAN VILLAGE) – 6 unsexed F-1 fish ~1.5 inch 6/$45
2 groups available.
Pseudomugil cyanodorsalis – 2 pair for $35
Two groups available. These need salt water. 1 ¾ cup sea salt per 5 gallons or 1.017 SG. Thrives on live baby brine shrimp.
From Gary himself:
I’m busy feeding bows, changing their water and picking lots of eggs to make you rainbowfish egg kits. Precise instructions, first fry food and a vial of usually 50-90 eggs are included. You’ll be expected to hatch live baby brine shrimp for them for their second week food source. Get some 5 & 10 gallon clean bare tanks ready with heaters set at 82 degrees F. Get yourself some 6x6 trays to incubate the eggs in. For a complete rundown look at my article on the MASI forum. http://www.missouriaquariumsociety.com/FishHeads_Forum/viewtopic.php?f=2... One tank per species as one will outgrow the other and the smaller ones will get eaten. See you shortly!
