Diet & Nutrition:Although Australian Rainbows have large mouths, their throats tend to be narrow. With this in mind, foods should not be too large. The Australian Rainbow is an omnivore and should eat a mixed diet of flake foods, live foods, and plant matter.
Breeding & Spawning: Egg layer; reproduces more easily in a separate breeding tank with a moss substrate. Courtship begins with the male displaying his brightest colors.
Gender: Mature males will be more colorful and have a more highly arched back.
