True in most cases... although Murray River Rainbows have been widely regarded as "frog-friendly". Research needs to be done though on this and other species to find out to what extent. Meanwhile, having a decent amount of submerged vegetation definitely makes a difference no matter what fish you use.

Information regularly gets added to the forum on this topic as more people experiment and make observations for particular species. See the following posts as examples (all mention rainbowfish):
