New Guinea Red Rainbow (Glossolepis incisus)


A beautiful and larger-growing species of rainbowfish, the New Guinea Red Rainbow makes for a stunning centerpiece fish for medium to large community or planted aquariums. With their deep red coloration (more intense in males) and extremely active nature, they add a splash of color to almost any freshwater aquarium. As with most rainbowfish, they are best kept in groups of 5 or more fish and will do best in an aquarium with ample cover (such as live or artificial plants).
