Hard to find fish?

Is a Furcatus rainbow a rare fish? Such a cool fish but I've never seen one before

It depends. I know of three stores in my state that almost always have furcata rainbows. If the store specializes in fish, you can ask them to order some.

Hm that's interesting. I may have to ask my LFS if they would do that. Schooling fish?

Fairly common, should be able to special order them, I see them up on the farm lists pretty regular. They do best in groups for sure.

I've read that there pretty active fish. I'm thinking about starting a 35 gal hex here soon and wanted an angel in there. Angel with the Furcatus rainbow and corys. Think that would be a problem? I don't want to stress the angel out or anything?

Furcatus would be Angel snacks I'm afraid.

Bummer... That really sucks. I guess I'll have to try and find something different then. Thanks
