Melanotaenia boesemani
Boesemans rainbow fish
breeding notes

BREEDING: Like most rainbows it prefers open water, with some plant matter at the edges, in which they will spawn. In a separate breeding tank spawning mops can be used, in order to collect the eggs, and raise the fry away from the adults. Fry can be fed powdered dry food from the start, but like all fish, welcome newly hatched artemia nauplii.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Great first fish! Livebearers are unlike other fish in that they do not lay eggs; the young develop inside the mother and when born are significantly larger than the offspring of similarly sized egglayers. Species such as the guppy, platy and swordtail are incredibly prolific and are some of the best known, and most colouful aquarium species
