These fish have a very varied diet and can be fed different types of food including vegetables and meat-based items such as frozen woodworms, zooplanktons, flakes, pellets and live food like small brine shrimp, mosquito larvae and daphnia.

The Red Neon Blue Eye Rainbowfish (Pseudomugil luminatus) is an ideal species for aquarium hobbyists to breed. Once they have established themselves within the tank, it's easy to begin the breeding process. To encourage them to do so, you will need a mature group of males and females as well as a floating spawning mop extending from the top of your tank down to its substrate.
