Rainbowfish are a small family of fish found only in the geographical region of Australia and New Guinea. Many of these fish are endangered or threatened in their native habitat, so they are a great fish to breed in captivity to help reduce pressure on wild populations and ensure the ongoing existence of the species. Rainbowfish are generally considered two groups, the Melanotaeniiadae and Pseudomugilidae or blue eyes. The blue eyes are often found in coastal areas and some prefer a degree of brackishness or even full marine water. Be sure to do your homework before trying to keep these fish, not a beginner choice.
