Galaxy Rasbora/Microrasbora, named/described.

This little gem now has a scientific name and full taxonomical description...
Be sure to visit all the links in the article for the in-depth info/details.

The issues associated with this species status in the wild are being addressed at all levels, we can only hope that wild collections will be discontinued and the species/habitat allowed to recover.
There are likely enough fish in hobbyist/professional hands, that the species will survive even if it becomes extinct in the wild.
As long as genetic diversity is maintained in breeding the future of this species should be secure one way or another.
Reintroduction of the species into the wild would be possible at a later time.

I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.

They do look an awful lot like danios, once it's pointed out. Very cool.
I just want my planted tanks to be perfect. Is that so much to ask?

55g: (Mostly) African riverine species: Alestes Chaperi, breeding pair of Kribs, and rhino pleco
30g: Newly established reef tank
10g: Planted but fishless
5g: Unplanted with various snail species
2.5g: Heavily planted with betta.

When I first saw a picture of this fish I was wondering why it was called a rasbora and not a danio. It has always looked like a danio to me. Just has the general look, which I know can be deceiving when classifying.
