Goyder River Rainbowfish - In Store Pick Up Only


Scientific Name:

Melanotaenia trifasciata


Goyder River Rainbows are undoubtedly one of the most popular and sought-after Rainbow species for aquariums due to their vibrant colouration and energetic nature. These beautiful fish enjoy being in a school and males will display full colouration when around other dominant males or when looking at females during breeding seasons.


Inhabit a wide area across Northern Australia, from the Mary River in the Northern Territory, throughout Arnhem Land, around the Gulf of Carpentaria to Cape York Peninsula.

About me:

  • Grows to: 15cm
  • Temperature: 24-33° celcius
  • pH: 6.5-8.0
  • Temperament: Peaceful


Rainbows are a peaceful, schooling fish that are easily compatible with other species of Rainbows, other smaller native species like Gudgeons, catfish, and most larger peaceful tropical fish. Rainbows are a very fast fish and so do not always work out with small or slow fish as they can be a bit too much for them and can make it hard to feed. Can also be a bit nippy if tank mates have long flowing fins.  



  • Tropical Pellets
  • Tropical Flakes
  • Insect pellets/flakes
  • Frozen Foods



Is an energetic excitable fish that enjoys being in a school so will need a decent amount of free space for the entire school to be able to happily cruise around the tank.  Can be in a planted tank as long as the plants are not taking up too much space.
