Parkinsoni Rainbow

A large male Parkinsoni rainbow  Parkinsoni and Goyder River trifaciata

Parkinsoni rainbows produced at Ausyfish are the orange colour form. A number of colours are in the hobby. The main colours are orange and yellow. Although the colours are considered by some to be completely separate forms, however, when breeding these fish, it is possible for any of the colour forms to have some of the other colours in each batch.

Very young fish don't display full colour, but as the fish age the colour gradually moves over the body of the fish, starting from the tail. The fins develop colour first. The large fish shown in these pictures are only one year old. Over the next few months the colour will cover most of the body of the fish.
