Gold Rainbow Shark
Temperature: 24 - 29°C
Max Size: 15cm
Temperment: Semi-aggressive - can be kept in a community tank with similar sized tankmates.
Shoal Size: Only keep one per aquarium to minimise aggression.
Food: Not fussy/most aquarium foods
Despite it's common name, they are not true sharks - which belong to the Chondrichthyes ("cartilagenous fishes"), and are instead an Actinopterygiian ("ray-finned fish").
Become aggressive towards their own (and similar) species when mature, so should not be kept in groups.
Prefers a well-planted aquarium with plenty of hiding spots. Due to their large size when mature, not recommended for beginner fish keepers.
