    Group of fully adult, 4 males, 3 females. Beautiful fish! Full disclosure is that these caught a parasite from a fish that I added to the tank (quarantine!), but they've been treated and isolated now for about 8 months, so I think they are fine. I haven't bred these in several years, but I'm sure they would be ready to go. Put a spawning mop in with them and breed your first rainbow! :)

    What size tank would they need. tap or rainwater?

    Never mind I looked it up. I would like to give them a try.

    Hard water is great. They are in a 30 right now. Will you be at the meeting tomorrow?

    No and it will be a while before I can get them as I would have to set up another tank. If someone wants them before me I understand.
