The Goyder River Rainbowfish has a black horizontal stripe and red fins. Their fins usually have a black edge to them. Like most Rainbowfish, these fish are extremely social and flexible, so they will work well with others in a tank. Also, they will transition well into their new home.
Behaviors: Most Rainbowfish are active swimmers and are rarely aggressive but do quarrel with each other.
Compatibility: Some recommended tank mates include other varieties of Rainbowfish, Clown Loaches, Danios, Barbs, Gouramis, and many other medium-size aquarium fish.
Temperature: These Rainbowfish can live pretty well from about 65 to 80 degrees F., but they’re probably most comfortable at about 74 degrees F.
Feeding: Premium Fish Food Flakes when small and Premium Pellet Food when larger.
Water Conditions: These Rainbowfish seem to be tolerant of a wide range of water conditions.
Probably a pH of about 7.5 with moderate hardness is best.
Most water in the US has a higher pH and is harder but seems to be OK, so it’s probably best NOT to adjust the pH or the hardness of the water.
Here in our facilities, the water is hard and the pH is usually about 7.8. We ship them in this water.
