Beautiful fish, i used to have a small group of these which were being sold as G.incisus which is a species commonly seen in stores here in the UK, though as soon as i saw them i knew they were in fact G.pseudoincisus. when i first started to keep rainbow fish i had read a number of articles on the differences between these two and there seemed to be quite a lot of conflicting information, but once you have seen both species i think the differences are quite obvious.
Thanks, these are great fish. Great personality compared to g.incisus, stay smaller, and I prefer the coloration and scale rows on these guys. I know the pictures are huge, but I didn't want to downsize them, since there is so much definition in the photos. Sorry if it's difficult to view the photos. Let me know, and I can make them smaller/fit to page.
Great pics Lori. What is the temperament with these compared to Incisus?. I could never keep Incisus. They would always dominant and kill or stress all the other similar sized bows in my community tanks.I haven't kept any since 2000. also,What is the source of these ,do we know?
Their temperament is nothing like the g.incisus or hybrid red rainbows we've had around for so long. Oh, you didn't see the video of them yet. I'll work on getting some videos of fish on the forum. They are "nice" fish as far as rainbows go, and stay smaller. These are large adults, up to 8 years old.... Ok, looks like the dominant male is 7-8cm long, and almost 4 cm tall.....the largest female is also about 8 cm long, and about 2 cm tall.....the rest of the group are about 6cm. They are active fish, playful but not aggressive.
