I like the idea of chili rasboras and halfbeaks. A dwarf gourami would look great.

I love my chilis. However they are very loose schoolers at best. There's always a couple on their own and every one of them seems to just be doing their own thing. Lol. They are still awesome though.

I just ordered 12 of these bad boys! Been lusting over them for weeks. Couldn't decide on spotted or mosquito rasboras. What tank level do yours swim at?

Nice tank! I like the idea of chili (or any of the dwarf rasbora) school. But I am partial to them.

There is also the idea of a GBR or Bolivian ram. I have a couple in my large community tank (70 gallon) I think one would be nice with current stock

I would say mid level, but they really go everywhere in my tank. They are super bright tonight since they have been nomming on baby brine shrimp and blood worms lately. Great color on them!

Boraras brigittae is commonly known as the chili rasbora, dwarf rasbora, micro rasbora, and mosquito rasbora. Because this fish is rarely found in local pet stores, and is almost exclusively bought from hobbyists or private breeders, it is also common to find it sold under its scientific name, Boraras brigittae.
