In fact it is quite friendly and no worse for wear for having been on its own. Must be a girl. lol. Not sure how to tell the sex of LKrainbowfish. Want 3 more of them too. The bad fins have grown in nicely and they two youngsters are doing well.
Boesman's are yellow and green aren't they? Are yours yellow and green?
I love Rainbowfish.
I know about the fin colors, and for sure one is a male, but the LFS I got them, thought one other was possibly a male (though it did look like a female). When they are young, apparently it's not as evident. My are all fine now that I have 5, so perhaps I do have 4 girls and one boy. Though I read they are pretty peaceful with each other, so I'm okay. I believe the Bosemans are a bit more aggressive if you have 2 males, but that's probably only with limited space. I bought 2 Bosemans, awhile ago, but after I got them home, and did more reading on them, I realized my tank sadly is not big enough and I returned them. They are very pretty, blues and yellows. Even now that I've upgraded to a 43 gal tank, it's still not big enough for Bosemans
I do like my dwarf rainbows, they seem very smart. I just now have to decide what other fish I will add to my larger tank. Still need to get it cycled.
