Yes, I love harlequin rasboras! I have 17 of them in my 67 gallon tank at home and they are my second favourite fish in that tank (loaches are first favourite ). I'll see what other types of rasboras I can find in this city and go from there.

Some get large, so check the species.

If you don't mind my butting in, I am preparing to stock a 10-gallon tank. I know a 10 limits me to certain fish and overall bioload. I could go with a small school of 5 small fish. Any suggestions? Thanks. Oh, I'm not fully stocked with plants yet, but I will be before the school goes in.

Browse through the fish profiles, there are several suitable species under Cyprinids, some under Characins, a few under Catfish, some under Badids, and Atherinids. Look for small fish, and check water parameters as many of these will be wild caught and require fairly specific parameters. Minimum tank size is given for each, aliong with numbers 9for shoaling species) and any compatibility issues.

The "normal" tetra are really too large for a 10g, so look at the smaller species in the above lists.
