The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

SO CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Personally I'd like to call them ! rasbora. Possibly because it looks like the person typing it is like OMG rasbora.

So glad all of them arrived safe and sound. Looks like Cory brought another person to the microfish side!

They are sooo tiny! You got some great video of them! Are they going to get more colorful? I can see the exclamation mark on them, kinda. So which tank are they going in?

They look good in that tiny little tank. Hard to believe you have 15 in there I bet. Now that you're addicted to nano fish you're going to need more tanks!

PS-Good luck trying to count them. My advice? Just don't even try.

They should color up some more yes through I don't know for sure actually how they will. Apparently there is few different coloration in these guys depending where they were collected. So its going to be interesting to watch and see how they mature and color up.
You can read more about them here.
Boraras urophthalmoides — Seriously Fish
They also have some pics of the different colorations there to show the difference.

Ohh almost forgot. They will be going into my 10 gallon with my Salt and Pepper Cory and Scarlet Badis. That will finish that tanks stocking list! It will have all the lil fish I was wanting!!

Counting them in the bags were hard enough! There was 7 in one bag and 8 in another. I tried to counting them in the tank once and gave up pretty quickly! LoL

Awwww, new nervous little tinyfish! *swoons*

They're lovely, John - truly. The QT tank is perfect for them, I can't wait to see them calm down and start to shine for you! They'll be the perfect final additions to your 10g, and I will continue to swoon over your tanks, and be jealous of all the fish you have that are on my 'one day' list - but really appreciate you for taking the time to keep your thread updated. It gives me such a great opportunity to learn about these fish, and hopefully I'll be well-prepared by the time I feel ready to bring my own home!!!

I'm so happy for you! *hugs*

But I have to say. . . I'm fiending for a Puffer update now!!! (so demanding!)

LOL Jes!! I am in the middle of testing the QT tank's parameters. Right now the Ammonia and the Nitrites are both 0! Soo YAY for that! I still have to check the Nitrates and then see if I can get them to take some food!?!

I will see if I can get you a Puffer Video in the next day or two but for now just know he is doing great and is exploring his tank for snails!
