    hi there!

    I'm totally in love with these little guys. I originally read that they were a rainbowfish, but now I think they're a completely different species maybe? I'm not really even sure! I do have some questions though.

    1. What is there temperament like?

    2. What would be good tank mates if I had a school of 9 of them in a 37 gallon tank?

    3. How easy/difficult is it to get them?

    Thank!

    Here's some info on them:
    https://www.seriouslyfish.com/species/pseudomugil-gertrudae/

    I would not keep them with anything really active and boisterous - they won't compete well. They should be fine with another small, timid schooling fish (like one of the Boraras species or a similar nano fish). Cories or kuhlis would also be fine with them.

    Without buying online, we can't tell you how easy it is to get them, as we don't know of their availability in your area.
