Wrights Creek Rainbowfish

This is a Splendida splendida from the Coastal Drainage in Far North Queensland.

This fish is very easy to care for not too fussy about water quality. The region it comes from has experienced considerable urban intrusion. The creeks where it survives are reasonably polluted, yet it survives and breeds. It does prefer warmer water but will survive for short periods at about 15 celsius. Best at 25 celsius when it will show its best colours.
