Gary Lange strain of Melanotaenia bowmani collected from the Siriwo River system in West Papua. Melanotaenia bowmani (not to be confused with Boesemani) have very similar care requirements to many Melanotaenia species of rainbowfish. Adult males have yellow/golden color on their head and body, black midlateral stripe, and a blue spot below the lateral strip and hints of blues in their finnage. The Melanotaenia bowmani is found in moderately fast flowing water with rocky substrate. In the aquarium, they will do best in a planted aquarium with some flow and open space to swim.
