 I've  bred  many  a  fish  but,  have  never  tried  my  hand  with  breeding  rainbow  fish!
 Since  I  have  a  pair  of  full  sized  adult  red-rainbows  would  like  someone  to  let  me  know  their  experiences  and  general  ideas  at  breeding  this  beautiful  fish  -  it  has  layed  many-a-times  and  since  they  were  in  a  well  planted  community  tank  -  I  never  had  the  inclination  to  take  them  out  to  spawn  them  in  a  different  tank  and  disturb  my  plants  and  fish.
 Since  I  re-arranged  my  tank  recently  -  I  was  able  to  catch  them  and  are  now  in  a  more  approachable  tank  with  just  some  anubias.
 Since  yesterday  I  noticed  they  started  their  courtship  display  and  the  male  and  female  swimming  long  circles  -  togeather.
 I  made  up  my  mind  to  try  my  hand  at  breeding  them  !
 any  inputs  from  you  guys  will  be  helpful  -  thanks

 Hi,
 The  fishes  shown  are  males.  Are  these  the  ones  that  are  courting.  Shocked  
 Females  are  brownish-silver  in  colour  and  will  not  show  red.

 Yes  Kiran,  the  fish  in  the  pic  are  courting!  -  The  female  remains  a  dark  brownish  colour  most  of  the  time  but,  only  when  they  start  the  courtship  dance  that  the  female  takes  up  a  reddish  sheen  and  that  remains  for  a  couple  of  days!

 I  sure  will  and  if  you  can  arrange  for  proper  transportation  -  I  might  give  you  the  pair  as  well  Thumb Up  and  then  you  can  give  me  some  fry!  Chuckle  
 Since  I  started  to  take  interest  in  my  rainbows  I  happen  to  notice  my  bosemani  rainbows  also  starting  their  courtship  dance!  
   Crying or Very sad  but,  it  is  in  a  no-approach  zone!

 I  too  second  on  kiran's  openion.  Looks  like  male.  Both  of  them,  plus  both  have  a  more  robust  body  which  is  usually  not  the  case  with  female  red  rainbows.  Anyway  since  you  are  confident  that  they  are  courting,  good  luck  to  you....

 I  myself  did  not  believe  the  change  in  colour  but  it  is  true!
 I'll  try  posting  the  normal  coloration  after  the  spawning  -  I've  seen  them  spraying  eggs  and  the  other  tetras  and  swordtails  feasting  on  eggs  or  I  would  not  have  been  so  confident  Very Happy

 Sorry  to  join  the  party  late!  If  you  are  referring  to  the  2  fishes  in  the  pic,  they  seem  to  be  males!
 BTW  using  java  moss,  bushy  plants  or  a  spawning  mop  would  be  the  best.
 The  eggs  are  rubbery  so  u  can  handle  them  with  your  fingers  too.

 Yes  they  did  spawn!
 But  I  lost  the  spawn  as  the  fish  were  in  a  community  tank    Crying or Very sad  
 I  shifted  the  pair  to  my  ponds  and  will  not  net  the  pond  till  monsoon!
