Need help finding fish that stay under an inch

So my tanks 8 gallons and I want some extremely small middle to top water thin bodied fish that stay under an inch. The smallest fish I can find is Trimmatom nanus but they are bottom dwelling.

Almost all sw fish that fit that criteri a are either rock dwelling gobies or sand dwellers. Many of the Eviota gobies fit that description and are fairly colorful.

Not really gonna find any free swimming fish that size

Thanks angel. I'm gonna look into acclimating these to salt but I'd like to find something even smaller than guppies. Preferably something that would be normally seen in a reef environment.

Bribo. The only gobies I'm seeing that stay under an inch are neon gobies. If I have to settle for bottom dwellers I will. How about inverts? Anything tiny that will stay in the water column?

Eviota is a genus of nano gobies. Trimma is also a genus of gobies that stay at or under an inch.

Just search Eviota or trimma gobies and you should be able to find different species. I donít know any inverts that donít live in the rocks or sand.

The smallest they have is the neon gobies. That's about maximum size I'm looking for.
