Pygmy Raspboras?

Boraras maculatus. I have never seen nor heard of them. They seem like they would be the be all of Nano fish species. Anybody have any experience with them?

I think they're gorgeous. I'm ordering some for my LFS soon! Can't find much info out there on them though, only a few sites.

Forgot to say. What I have read is that they're pretty peaceful and non-nippy. I'm planning on getting around 10 and putting them with a trio of honey gouramis and my Khulis.

This is the one I'm trying to get hold of:

Strange that the dwarf species isn't the smaller of the two??

I have to find a new place to get them if I decide to go that route. I looked at AZgardens.com and then read reviews and I do say, I feel like a fish abused for even contemplating orders from that site.
