Great fish.... I have actually caught some similar rainbow fish in Australia wild before, they actually transferred to tank very well and in the right conditions can be fairly easily bred. Mate of mine has a beautiful show tank in his house back home, its 4' x 4' x 2' totally planted and with about 25 of this species. He uses a wet n dry filter under the tank (yes its big), but one of the most beautiful aquariums I know.

Beckers, how large do Boseman's rainbows grow? Are they fast or slow swimmers? What are their temperaments? In what groups are they recommended to be kept? Are they easily available at fish stores?

Hi, ive got 4 boseman and 3 red rainbows they are about 2.5 inches long and are stating to show there colours, at what size do you think they will be adults.Rainbows I think are one of the best fish to buy they get on with every other fish in my 220l community tank .When they get older I will post some pictures ,if I can get them to stop swimming for a second because they are allways doing something cheers boff.
