The Celebes Rainbowfish is a beautiful, elegant, hardy, and active schooling fish that will add endless activity to the nano or planted aquarium!

The Celebes Rainbowfish (Marosatherina ladigesi) is one of the less widespread rainbowfish species and is native only to the streams of Sulawesi, Indonesia. It lives in very large schools in areas with dense vegetation, so it is an ideal candidate for the planted aquarium and especially enjoys the cover of floating plants.

The Celebes Rainbowfish is peaceful with other fish species of similar size and can also be kept with peaceful invertebrates that are too large to be considered prey. It may prey on dwarf shrimp at its adult size, although it does not have a particularly large mouth. The most intense color will be displayed when this fish is kept in schools of 6 or more, including multiple males, in a heavily planted, spacious aquarium.

What We Like About This Fish:

  • Active, schooling community fish that thrives in planted aquariums
  • Compatible with most invertebrates too large to be considered prey
  • Adults (especially males) display colorful, ornate finnage
  • Among the smallest of the Rainbowfish family
  • Very hardy and adaptable



  • Temperature:  22° - 28° C
  • pH:  7.0 – 8.0. Should not be kept in acidic conditions.
  • KH:  10 - 25 dKH



  • Diet:  Omnivorous.  High quality dry foods will be accepted, but should be supplemented often with small, meaty frozen and live foods.
  • Social behavior:  Schooling/shoaling, and should be kept in as large of groups as possible (6-8 fish minimum).  Peaceful with most other comparably sized fish but can be timid and can be outcompeted for food.  Usually compatible with invertebrates too large to be considered prey.
  • Origin:  Tank-bred, but indigenous rivers and estuaries of Sulawesi, Indonesia
  • Average adult size:  3 – 3.2 inches (7.6 - 8 cm)
  • Average purchase size:  .5 - 1 inch (1.2 - 2.5 cm)
