I read that rainbow fish have parental instincts and will lay eggs in a cave while the mother protects them and the father protects the caves. I only read this once and everything else is saying different so which is right.

Rainbowfish spawn by placing their eggs in plants and mops, they do not spawn in caves. The adults give no care whatsoever to the eggs or fry, and in fact they may eat them when they find them.

I also have not heard any rainbows that care for fry. They are great to mop spawn if you're looking to breed.

Rainbows will eat their eggs and/or fry given the opportunity.
