To protect our animals and to ensure they get to our customers healthy, we will only ship orders with Nano Fish via UPS Next Day Air.
Blue Eye Forktail Rainbowfish are beautiful nano fish with bright blue eyes and yellow fins. These stunning fish are are relatively small and can grow to a a max size at about 2.5 inches which makes them perfect for a planted nano aquarium.
We recommend keeping these guys in groups of 5 or more to achieve the best coloration for both males and females.
These fish are adult shrimp-safe, however, we recommend having sufficient plants or hiding spots for aquariums with both Forktail Rainbowfish and freshwater shrimp.
Blue Eye Forktail Rainbowfish are pretty easy to care as long as they are introduced to a mature, cycled tank. They can acclimate to a wide range of parameters. The following are our water parameters we keep them at:
Our Tank Water Parameters

We feed them a mix of live baby brine shrimp, frozen daphnia and high-quality flake food.
