Their fins are also adorned with vibrant hues, including yellow, red, and blue, creating a dazzling display of colors when the fish swims.

  • Ideal Tank Setup: Provide Paskai's Rainbows with a spacious aquarium that replicates their natural habitat. A tank size of at least 30 gallons is recommended for a small group. Decorate the tank with plenty of plants, rocks, and driftwood to create hiding spots and simulate their natural environment. Provide moderate lighting and a sandy substrate.

  • Water Conditions: Paskai's Rainbows prefer slightly acidic to neutral water conditions. Aim for a pH range of 6.5 to 7.5 and a temperature between 75-82 degrees Fahrenheit (24-28 degrees Celsius). Maintain good water quality through regular water changes and the use of a reliable filtration system.

  • Feeding Habits: These fish are omnivorous and will readily accept a variety of foods. Offer them a balanced diet that includes high-quality flakes, pellets, and live or frozen foods such as brine shrimp, daphnia, and bloodworms. Supplement their diet with vegetable matter, such as spirulina flakes or blanched vegetables.

  • Compatibility: Paskai's Rainbows are generally peaceful and can coexist with other peaceful community fish. They are best kept with fish of similar size and temperament. Avoid keeping them with aggressive or fin-nipping species. Compatible tankmates include tetras, gouramis, dwarf cichlids, and peaceful bottom-dwelling fish.
