The Spotted Blue-eye Rainbowfish is an absolutely beautiful fish and when kept in groups of 8-10 in a planted tank, will provide you will a wonderful display of both colour and behaviour. The males are especially great to watch while they flair their fins and show some amazing colours.

Creating the ideal aquarium for these little fish is not too demanding. We recommend a heavily planted aquarium including a small amount of floating plants to provide some cover. Due to their timidness, it is advised to keep them in their own aquarium. This makes them very popular among aquascapers looking for a fish species to complement their layout.

The diet of these special little fish should consist of lots of live foods and high-quality dry food of suitable sized granules. When fed well, colour and behaviour are much more natural.

Breeding can easily be achieved in a similar way to other egg scattering species. To condition them, a slight increase in the water temperature. The simplest method is to maintain a group of adults in a heavily planted aquarium, allowing eggs to fall into the aquatic plants and fry seeking refuge among them until they are large enough to join their parents.

 

All our fish are quarantined on arrival for two weeks. During this time, they are treated for any possible diseases and given a complete health check  to make sure they are health, happy and eating well before being placed in our display aquariums, ready for sale.

Dead on Arrival (DOA) Policy: In the unfortunate event that your fish arrives dead, please follow these steps: Within 12 hours of the delivery, take clear, unopened bag pictures showing the deceased fish. Send these photographs and your order number to our customer service email at getfish@thefishroom.co.nz or to our Facebook page and we will then offer a refund or store credit for the cost of the fish. 

Two-Week Guarantee Policy: We stand behind the health and quality of our fish, which is why we offer a two-week guarantee starting from the day of delivery. If your fish dies within this time frame, adhere to the following procedure: Take clear photos of the deceased fish. Using a reliable test kit, document via a dated photo, water parameters (pH, ammonia, nitrate, nitrite levels). Please email us the photographs, water parameters, and order number to getfish@thefishroom.co.nz or our Facebook page. After reviewing your claim, if approved, we will issue a store credit for the cost of the fish. Our two-week guarantee does not cover fish deaths due to unsuitable water conditions, incompatible tank mates or “disasters” i.e. a heater overheating. We recommend thoroughly researching each fish species' needs before introducing them to your aquarium to prevent such situations. 

 Freight Charges: Please note that shipping or freight charges are non-refundable under all circumstances. We hope this guide makes our refund and guarantee process more understandable.
