Combray can provide you with his/her personal experience, but I will just mention we have photos of this species in our profiles that you may not know about. Second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top, or in posts if the name is the same as in the profile it will be shaded and you can click on that, example Mosquito Rasbora or Boraras brigittae.
I will also mention that I have had a group of these for more than a year. They do best in small tanks, and definitely with very quiet fish, and floating plants are necessary or the fish are frightened. The remain relatively near the surface, and require small floating foods (flake, etc), and frozen brine shrimp and frozen daphnia if you can find it.
Attached is a photo of mine when they were in a 10g. I have since moved them to the 29g SE Asian Lagoon tank and they are doing fine with small tankmates like sparkling gourami, dwarf loaches, Dario dario, etc.
