The Spotted Blue-Eye Rainbowfish is a beautifully delicate small rainbowfish. They only grow to 1.5”. They inhabit shallow heavily vegetated slow-moving streams or standing waters with submerged branches, roots, or leaf litter. They prefer warm temperatures 70-83o F. In nature they can be found in Papua New Guinea and nearby territories.

They enjoy the water to be stained with tannins (Almond leaves would be perfect as cover as well). Some floating plants such as Salvinia also give them a sense of calm. Java Moss is great to give the eggs and fry cover since the adults will try and eat them.
Spotted Blue-Eye Rainbowfish prefer to be kept in small groups of 8-10 individuals. We feed them a large variety of foods which include finely ground Northfin flake foods, small Northfin pellets (veggie, community, & bug pro), frozen foods. Their scientific name is Pseudomugil gertrudae.
Our Tank Parameters
All arrived healthy and are acclimating wonderfully. I ordered 8 fish and just so happened to get 4 males and 4 females. They are all shoaling together. They also have been completely ignoring my amano and neocardinia shrimp. It's hard to get a good picture of them because they are so active. Thanks for these beautiful fish!
the rainbow fish (8) all arrived so happy and healthy and eggs were in the bag when they arrived! Not sure if they’re viable but I thought it was cool! They are still happy now and I love to see them travel around the tank
Beautiful fish & all arrived healthy and in great shape.
They are amazing! I got several extra. Everything came healthy and they are buzzing around flaring like crazy.
