Glossolepis dorityi for sale: Dority's rainbowfish fish from Lake Nenggwambu
Dority's rainbowfish fish
Glossolepis dorityi also originates from West Papua, like Melanotaenia rubrostriata Dekai Village (see). Males attain a maximum length of about 15 cm, females stay smaller. Sadly the females have only quite dull colors. Males need about one year to reach a length of 7-8 cm. At that size they already display a real firework of splendid colors, which fascinate any observer. It is hard to believe that a person might exist that is not fascinated by displaying males of Glossolepis dorityi Lake Nenggwambu!
The fins seem to burst when the males circle around each other and the females. The latter are led into the plantation where they spawn. These continuous spawners daily spawn some eggs. Over one week the breeder can obtain more than 100 eggs from one male and two females. The newly hatched larvae must be fed with infusoria or likewise small food, because Artemia nauplii are much too large for them. Glossolepis dorityi Lake Nenggwambu does best at comparatively high water temperatures (28°C), medium hard water, a pH around 7 and a water change on a regular basis. Then they become literally "underwater jewels"!
