The Boesemani Rainbow, also known as Melanotaenia boesemani, is a colorful and lively freshwater fish species that originates from Indonesia. They are highly sought after by aquarists due to their stunning colors and active personalities.


Boesemani Rainbows can reach up to 4.5 inches in length and require a minimum tank size of 50 gallons. They are active swimmers and appreciate plenty of open swimming areas and hiding places, such as plants and driftwood. They are also peaceful and can be kept with other non-aggressive species.


These omnivores will eat a variety of foods, including flakes, pellets, frozen, and live foods. It's important to provide a balanced diet to ensure they receive all the necessary nutrients for optimal health.


The Boesemani Rainbow's unique characteristic is their vibrant coloration, with shades of blue, purple, yellow, and orange on their body, fins, and tail. Their appearance can vary depending on their mood, with males displaying more intense and brighter colors during breeding season.
