Long-awaited Rainbowfish!!!!
 
I just wanted to say....I finally have the beginnings of a school of Rainbowfish for my 46g tank!!! :D :multi:

This is something I've wanted for a looooooong time (ok...well at least a few months). :lol:

* Any good names for 3 Australian Rainbowfish??? (3 will eventually grow to 6 or 7 I'm hoping)

lmw80 11-18-2004 01:36 PM

Congrats!!

Name them after the 7 dwarfs!

webmoose 11-18-2004 01:37 PM

Congrats!! Everyone comment on my rainbows.. They are getting very big now...

Moooose

smallfry 11-18-2004 03:55 PM

Corty 11-18-2004 04:01 PM

Dopey, Grumpy, Happy, Bashful, Sneezy, Sleepy.. and of course.. Doc.

smallfry 11-18-2004 04:15 PM

Thanks to you all....my school of Rainbowfish (eventually 7) will have the following names: Dopey, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy Sneezy, Doc, and Moose. :mrgreen:

Thanks again for the help!

(I'm so excited...can't wait for these 3 to get out of QT so I can get 4 more) :D

smallfry 11-18-2004 04:17 PM

It occured to me that Austalian Rainbows in general may be a bit too "cultured" and "dignified" for these names....but I'm sure they'll get over it. :lol:

webmoose 11-18-2004 05:49 PM

NICE!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Menagerie 11-18-2004 11:11 PM

Geez, Moose instead of Bashful!! It could always be Bashful Moose :wink:

Bruce, Bruce, Bruce, Bruce, Bruce, Bruce, and Bruce.

I would never name my rainbow Bruce.. He would always be going around the tanks saying.. HELLO I'm BRUCE the SHARK in a heavy accent.. It would drive me crazy... :)

Menegerie do you mean as in "Moose to afraid to talk to work the till at the Aquarium auction? :)"

How are the new rainbows doing?!?!?

Moooose

Update: I know that a 10g tank is too small for 3 Australian Rainbows longterm, but I thought it'd be ok just for QT....seems I could be wrong. :? One is bigger than the other 2 and is making life a bit miserable (and stressful) for them. No actual nipping/biting that I can see....but LOTS of chasing and guarding territory. Plus they all have an aversion to the tank light....I left it off the first day to get them acclimated....but even now when I turn on the light they FREEZE....I left it on for 30 minutes hoping they'd get used to it and relax, but they stayed FROZEN the whole time! :roll:

I'm just hoping the stress/small confines won't kill them....and they can all hang in there for the remainder of their QT time. Any suggestions, Moose???

smallfry 11-19-2004 11:48 AM

Kudos to lmw80 and webmoose for naming my Rainbowfish. :wink:

webmoose 11-19-2004 12:45 PM

Lots of plants and hiding places!!! Even though it is QT if you can maybe run out and get some big plastic plants..

My Boesmani Rainbows chase each other often.. It isn't agression like I've seen with Gouramis but they are all ways chasing back and forth... It isn't the type that concerns me.. No damage just play time.. :)

:lol: :lol: :lol:

why not make it 8 and stick Bashful in there as well?

smallfry 11-19-2004 02:00 PM

I could give them ALL the name Moose.....then I'd have "Meese"... (you know, like more than one Goose is Geese) :mrgreen:

On second thought...I think I'll stick with the aforementioned names I already chose. Thanks anyway everybody! :)

And thanks, Moose for the advice and reassurance.

Moose, this statement makes me think you have Rainbow sharks instead of Rainbowfish???? I have Rainbowfish....but they do ACT like sharks in my puny 10 qt tank.... 8O
