New Fish Tank Tips: Get and use an aquarium water test kit to monitor the aquarium nitrogen cycle. The best way to monitor this cycle is to purchase a freshwater or saltwater test kit that will test for ammonia, nitrites, nitrates and ph. Test the water coming out of your tap as well. This will arm you with more information when it comes time for those water changes. Contents of this page belong to www.fishlookup.com
The red rainbowfish or salmon-red rainbowfish (Glossolepis incisus) is endemic to dense vegetation waters of Lake Sentani in Jayapura, West Papua. The males are bright red and with age grow a high back. Their colours change depending on their mood, but subordinate males do not display bright colours.
