Approximately 2 inches in purchase size, mixed males and females. 

The Melanotaenia sikuensis is a fairly new fish to the aquarium hobby being just described in 2015. The head and body will develop a yellowish/orange color and is accompanied by a large black lateral stripe along its body. They can grow up to five inches so a four foot aquarium is recommended long term. They are not fussy eaters and will accept most dried foods, frozen and live.  Photo does not do this fish justice. I recommend researching them if you would like to see how beautiful they are as adults.
