Threadfin Rainbowfish

Just WOW!!!
This is the first time I ever ordered threadfin Rainbows online, and was so pleasantly surprised at their size and coloration!!! Simply amazed at their flowing fins!!! I got all males and they look fantastical!!! Really healthy and vibrant!! I wanted them for the main tank but loved them so much they got their own 30 long gal tank!!! I wholeheartedly recommend these beauties to anyone!!! I will be adding some of your shrimps real soon to their tank!!!

Wonderful!

I have bought threadfin rainbowfish from two other stores, both of those occasions the threadfins were small and did not live very long. One of those websites I bought them from will remain nameless but I had nearly all of them die off within the first week. It has been almost a week or two now and all the threadfins are alive all are doing well, and they are a lot bigger than any threadfins I have ever had the pleasure of owning. They are so entertaining to watch, and I just wish I had a bigger tank to buy more fish from you guys. Thank you for the continued great experiences with buying fish
