Rainbow Shiner *Czech Tank-Bred* (Notropsis chrosomus)

2 reviews Write a Review


Bred in Europe, these extra-large specimens are native fish and are highly sought-after due to the breeding dress that the males of the species assume from May to June. For a month or two every year, the males burst into bright pinks and red along their flanks and their heads stand out against their bodies as if they were painted blue; this is quite a sight to behold! These fish should be kept in shoals in aquariums no smaller than 10 gallons, and adding plenty of plants, rocks and other hardscape will help the fish feel safe and natural.***These fish DO NOT ship individually bagged. They are schooling/shoaling fish, and individual bagging/shipping causes unnecessary stress*** Approximately 2.25 inches in length

    Rainbow shiners

    I am happy with my purchase. They all came in healthy, alive and have colored up. The packaging of the fish were top-notch and the customer service was outstanding! I would order again.

    Beautiful and healthy

    The rainbow shiners I ordered from Jason are beautiful. They have this shimmer to them when they're in the light, and they're not even in spawning colors!
