What are people's opinions on keeping this fish? I was at the LFS today and they had a bunch of tiny ones in stock (all about 1/4-1/2") for about $6 each. From what I've read on the web, this is a good price as they're usually $8-10. Doing a little more research, I've read they do well in schools and are one of the better fish to keep in really small planted aquaria (i.e. 5 gallons or so).
However, I also read that they're a newly discovered species and that their populations in the wild are probably threatened due to how many have been caught for the aquarium trade. One site said that a lot of hobbyists are boycotting the fish in order to protect their numbers in the wild.
Does anyone know more about the fish and their situation? I'd like to own some, but I also don't want to contribute to wiping out a native population of fish.
