    I recently bought these from a supplier in Darwin Aust 3000klm away and only took 23hrs from door to door all arrived in perfect condition.

    I took these photos about 30hrs later which I did not expect to see them as first lot were rather shy and by adding another 10 total 16 now.

    If all goes well I will order 10 more before our summer weather arrives.

    Their mouth is so small I practically powder the different flake foods I give them.

    That makes them perfectly safe with all my Shrimps.

    The Threadfin Rainbowfish is a small unusual fish with a long thin body and a very small mouth. The males are easily recognised by long feathery fins when mature and grow to an approximate total length of 6 cm. Females are smaller and grow to approximately 4cm total length.

    That makes them the perfect fish for having with Shrimp and my 75cm 100lt planted tank.
