    Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase!
    Storm clouds may gather,

    Diet: Omnivore – Like most rainbowfish they prefer live foods like brine shrimp and bloodworms, however they will accept most prepared foods.
    Tank Size For Adult: 55 gallon / 200 liter (the wider the better as this fish needs room to swim, some suggest at least a four foot wide tank at the minimum)
    Narrative: Males have a unique split coloration. The front half of a male fish is brilliant silver to bluish grey, the back half can be yellow to a bright orange-red. Females are duller in coloration and look like most other species of Melanotaenia. This fish loves to swim and will really benefit from a large swimming area.
