There aren't, so far as I know, standard common names for any of the microrasboas except for the galaxy rasbora (which these aren't). I have heard Exclamation Point Rasbora for B. brigittae, and Dwarf Rasbora for B. merah. Those three that you list are among the most recommended fish for a planted pico - nano tank. Another member of that genus B. maculatus (I think that's it), is even more common in award winning planted nano tanks.

None of them are readily available (in the US any way - where you are, maybe a different story), none of the are cheap.

I just did a little googling and found the following common names...

Bororas merah: Dwarf Clown Rasbora, Phoenix Rasbora

Bororas urophthalmoides: Exclamation Point Rasbora, Sparrow Rasbora

Bororas brigitte: Dwarf Redfin Rasbora, Chili Rasbora

The only site I could find that sells them is franksaquarium.com/nanofish. I also looked on aquabid.com, but they only have Galaxy Rasboras at the moment.

Hope this helps some :)

Yes, I don't see how the cories can attack or bother their fellow tankmates. Being small, you can have 10 cories if your wallet permits. Wiht Boraras species, 20 can actually fit. Still the same as the case of 100 neons in a 55 gallons tank. I doubt Boraras ever would contribute too much wastes.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

C Hastatus likes to be in shoals of around 10. I'd get 8 and then 10 or 12 microrasboras. That should be OK. If your tank is heavily planted, you might want to push that up a little, but not too much.

awesome :) thanks ! i decided on 8 corys, 4 bumblebee shrimp, and 10 rasboras [Boraras merah]. not sure how i should order them, don't want to add too many at once and make the levels insane. should i get the plants first ?? i actually might try Marsilea quadrifolia, the four-leaf clover along with anubias nana.
