Pseudomugil furcatus

Post by SxAqua »

Looking for advice on these rainbows.

I'm researching my next tank mates for a few weeks time and have seen conflicting advice regarding tank size for these.

My tank is 110L, planted, parameters seem to match for this species and my rasboras and Cory's seem to match with these fish.

Any advice on these fish welcome !

Thanks

What is your water hardness?
Forktails prefer hard water, whereas corys (and probably the rasbora) prefer soft water.
What are the dimensions of the tank?
They’re not a very big fish so dont need a huge amount of room, and they are very entertaining to watch. I kept signifer rainbows for a short time, if your water is soft/softer it may be worth looking at a few of the other pseudomugil species :)

Threadfins are good in softer water. ;)

Can I just add... I'm looking at these as it's been suggested they spend a fair bit of time in the top 3rd of the tank. I am open to alternatives to look at.
