    hi there!

    I'm totally in love with these little guys. I originally read that they were a rainbowfish, but now I think they're a completely different species maybe? I'm not really even sure! I do have some questions though.

    1. What is there temperament like?

    2. What would be good tank mates if I had a school of 9 of them in a 37 gallon tank?

    3. How easy/difficult is it to get them?

    They are very peaceful but timid and easily outdone for food. It looks like the best tankmates would be shrimp. Probably cherry shrimp. I found them online in groups of 3,6,9,and 12. The price is about $6 apiece.


    Shipping is UPS next day air so probably not cheap.

    I would not keep them with anything really active and boisterous - they won't compete well. They should be fine with another small, timid schooling fish (like one of the Boraras species or a similar nano fish). Cories or kuhlis would also be fine with them.

    Without buying online, we can't tell you how easy it is to get them, as we don't know of their availability in your area.
