The Boeseman's Rainbowfish Melanotaenia boesemani is a relatively new addition to the hobby but has quickly gained in popularity. It is an active and good sized rainbow fish, reaching up to 4.5 inches (11.5 cm). Looking at a mature male makes it easy to see why they are called Bicolor Rainbow fish. It is a beautiful blue-gray on the front half of the body and a vibrant orange-red on the back half.
Its coloration in a pet store is usually a dull steel gray and hardly seems worth purchasing. But a serious and patient aquarist can bring out unforgettable colors. The secret to good colors is to buy quality specimens, feed a varied diet, and above all keep up with frequent water changes and maintenance.
