    I think that is Telmatherina celebensis which are found in Lakes Towuti, mahalona and Wawontoa Sulawesi

    Good one Mark. I’ve heard of celebes rainbows but I guess I’ve never seen one before?

    Here’s an interesting tidbit.

    That might be because the common one in the trade sold as that is Marosatherina ladigesi Jim. Also from Sulawesi though I think.

    This is a new one on me too.

    Definite Telmatherina, I’ve bred one species which appeared to be slightly different to this, from the key I had I thought they were T. bonti although there was some debate. I found the eggs to be delicate, I hatched them in pyrex dishes with a hint of methylene blue.
    They’re not that prolific, but the eggs are large and the fry take BBS immediately. Decent-sized tank, they’re active fish and will knacker a female if she can’t get away.
    I gave up breeding them when the cretin I used to have to endure let a dish full of eggs and fry dry out while I was away for a few days, all that was left was a blue stain with little fish shapes embedded in it.
    These may be polymorphic, so don’t be surprised if you find males with different colours from a single batch.
    I’ve seen another species imported, they were thought to be T. antoniae but they might have been prognatha when I think about their appearance.

    Kuba, how big are the fish you have? I’m looking again at the reprint I have of the Ichth. Expl. FW paper on these, and that fish you have does look in profile much more like bonti to me than celebensis.

    I only have a rather tatty hard copy, I’ll see if I can find a better version online. Anyone else got a .pdf of the relevant Ichthy. Expl. FW?

    for me is Telmatherina bonti

    telmatherina and the gobies and shrimps from Sulawesi lakes are in great danger:

    when I showed this topic to Helen Larson she was very sad and confirmed to me that normally the two videos we should see many telmatherina.
