Thanks Theresa! Means a lot coming from you

I don't think I have seen those before, I was afraid I was going to be stuck with just another beta(not that I don't like Betas) or shrimp (which I know nothing about so I'll look into those

You're welcome!

They're Boraras maculatus, really nice little fish. Good size for a small tank, not shy, great color.



Another option for a variety of color would be a group of male Endlers.

Those are gorgeous, what is a good size school for my tank? And it seems I would need a glass lid?

I keep 10 in a 5g with no problems, you could easily do the same.

They're definitely mid to top level fish but I don't think they're known to be jumpers.

That sounds awesome! And the only article I have read on them warned on jumping so I wasn't sure

Do you keep and shrimp with them or species only?

Not currently but I have in the past. They might eat shrimplets depending on how heavy the tank is planted (or other hiding places) but not adults.

Alright thanks! I'm a little curious on trying out shrimp they seem fun so I figure this is a good tank to try, though I'm starting to enjoy my smaller tanks more than my larger ones for whatever reason so I'm hoping for a couple more 5 gallons for Christmas from santa(the mrs)

HAHA! Finally caught the little yellow lab/peacock hybrid or whatever he is!

After two months I finally got him!

Update: added some Cyprus helferi to the 5.5

Heard its hit or miss so we will see how it goes

I think it looks good though, also planning on adding some neons and maybe an angelfish or two to the 29

Need to see how aqadvisor reacts and then most likely completely disregard
