The beautiful Goldie River Rainbowfish is an appreciated aquarium species and it is not very tricky to keep. Despite this, it is still fairly rare in the hobby. Try to resemble its natural habitat when you decorate the aquarium and include a lot of plants. Hiding spots are very important; the fish can easily become stressed and shy in a barren aquarium. In the wild, Goldie River Rainbowfishes congregate near sunken trees and submerged branches and they will therefore appreciate drift wood in the aquarium. Keep the water temperature in the 25-28 degrees C (77-82 degrees F) range. The water should be alkaline, from pH 7.1 to 7.8.
