Description

Ah, the Gertrude’s Rainbow Fish from the world-renowned Aquarium Glaser in Germany (scientifically known as Pseudomugil gertrudae)—a delightful aquatic gem! Let’s dive into the shimmering world of these captivating swimmers: 

  1. Overview:

    • The Gertrude’s Rainbow Fish, also called the “Spotted Blue Eye Rainbowfish,” hails from Papua New Guinea and Australia. These petite beauties are adored by aquarists for their vibrant colors and playful personalities.
    • Their streamlined, torpedo-shaped bodies allow them to move gracefully through water, while their upturned mouths are perfect for snatching food from the surface.
    • These little wonders measure around 1.2 inches (3 cm) when fully grown and thrive in a minimum tank size of 10 gallons (38 L).
    • Optimal water conditions include a temperature range of 72-79°F (22-26°C), a general hardness of 3-12 dGH, and a pH range of 6.5-7.5.
  2. Mesmerizing Colors:

    • The Gertrude’s Rainbow Fish boasts a dazzling palette that can’t be missed. Their translucent bodies shimmer with a blue iridescence, and their fins display a mix of bright blues, yellows, and oranges.
    • Males are more vibrant, with larger, ornate dorsal and anal fins, while females have subtler colors and smaller fins.
  3. Tough Little Creatures:

    • These fish are hardy! They can tolerate a wide range of water parameters, from temperatures of 12-34°C to pH levels of 3.7-9.4.

So, if you’re looking to add a living, swimming rainbow to your home, consider the Gertrude’s Rainbow Fish. They’ll light up your tank with their vibrant hues! 🌈🐟
