Pseudomugil tenellus

Native on the Northern coast of Australia, you can find this actively-adorable specie called Pseudomugil tenellus or commonly known as 'The Delicate Blue Eye Rainbowfish.'

Males has a gold and yellow vibrance on their fins and females are less colorful compared to them. It can be a good candidate for planted aquarium because it lives in areas with dense vegetation and loves the cover of floating plants.
What We Like About This Fish:
  • Very uncommon species that inhabits both fresh and brackish water
  • Active, schooling community fish that thrives in planted aquariums
  • Compatible with most invertebrates, including dwarf shrimp
  • Adults (especially males) display colorful, ornate finnage
  • Will breed in the home aquarium
  • Temperature:  77° - 89.6° F (25° - 32° C)
  • pH:  5.5 - 7.5
  • KH:  2 - 15 dKH
  • Minimum tank size:  20-30 gallons
  • Diet:  Omnivorous.  High quality dry foods will be accepted, but should be supplemented often with small, meaty frozen and live foods.
  • Social behavior:  Schooling/shoaling, and should be kept in as large of groups as possible.  Peaceful with most other comparably sized fish but is timid and can be outcompeted for food.  Usually compatible with adult dwarf shrimp and other invertebrates.
  • Origin:  Tank-bred, but indigenous to Northeastern Australia
  • Average adult size:  1.6 - 2.2 inches (4 - 5.5 cm)
  • Average purchase size:  .5 - 1 inch (1.2 - 2.5 cm)
