Turquoise rainbows

Melanotaenia lacustris...I have 6, finally managed to get some to sit still long enough for a good picture....the flash gets them all excited and they go into super-high-speed mode. They are only about 1.25" right now and already gorgeous. They should be glowing when they get to 3 or 4"! I've never seen these in any LFS until I found these.

Oh, and apologies for the green water....it's going away, slowly. The fish don't mind it at all.

I certainly love rainbows! Congrats on your new purchase. I think they have a term for Rainbow lovers......"Bowhead". I think I read that somewhere.
