Forktail Rainbowfish are known from clear, slow-moderately moving lowland tropical rain forest streams with thick vegetative cover. These diminutive fish are members of the family Pseudomugilidae (Blue Eyes). They make wonderful additions to the small-medium planted aquarium housing other petite, peaceful species, or even showcased as a single species shoal in a high end aquascape. The tank should be mature and have areas of dense vegetation, including some floating species, along with several tangles of driftwood (the spindly Sumatra wood is ideal) to help diffuse the light. Dark background and substrate choices will help to bring out the colors of these active fish.
