Rasboras are great fish. Nice to see some less common species

Harlequins look very similar, but they are larger with a bigger black patch.

I think one is a espei or hengeli ?

The first one is a Trigonostigma hengeli, possibly a female. It's certainly the biggest fish in my tank.
Second one is boraras brigittae
Third one is boraras merah

The latter two are difficult to tell apart and very often mislabled in the trade. Fortunately for me these two species get along very well and even school together.

The shrimp.... I'm still trying to identify those. It''s likely a wild variety of the well known RCS. Got half a dozen of these a few years ago and it's now a thriving population that comes in light, dark green and dark brown, some are now developing stripes.

Nice Shrimp, no matter what they are. Wild Type RCS sounds like a good guess. My RCS have a variety of markings. One has a skunk stripe.

Absolutely beautiful fish! Love the colours, reminds me a little of torpedo shark.
