Juvenile Boesmani Rainbows

I've been looking to add some movement to my aquarium in terms of active fish. I've also been looking at either boesmani rainbows or zebra danios. I was at a lfs yesterday and saw some boesmani rainbows, but they were listed at 17 bucks per fish. I refuse to spend that much on a fish that requires a school. I asked the guy that works there and he said that was his only rainbow tank. So I was perusing through the store and what do I find? A tank full of juvi boesmani rainbows (so much for only having one tank of rainbows huh?). At 6 bucks a piece, I couldn't refuse since I've wanted these fish for a while now. These pictures were taken from my phone, but I think they turned out pretty well.





EDIT: The bottom picture only contains 5 fish, but looks like a lot more because of their reflections.

Nice! It's reassuring to know that they can live that long! And now I know how you answered my blurry picture question in my other thread! lol
