The Madagascar Rainbowfish is one of two species native to a small region of eastern Madagascar. Both B. madagascariensis and B. geayi are called Madagascar Rainbowfish although the latter, from river drainages slightly south of the former, is also called the Red-tailed Silverside. They have slightly different colour patterns on some fins (above is the B. geayi).
