Watch out w/ the Bumblebee Gobis...I was reading another thread where it was mentioned that there are some that are fresh water and others that require brackish water.

I really do like the scarlet badis but they are kinda pricey for something so small.
Hey you asked for small I gave you a small fish with the 7mm

Dwarf Rasbora or Norman's Lampeye are small but a more decent size (not to mention the stunning blue eyes of the Lampeye are fantastic) and you should be able to get those for a 'decent' price.

They are housed in FW sometimes indeed. But they do live in brackish waters and that's where they'll thrive (around 1.005 sg)!

There are a lot of different bumblebee goby species. Some are freshwater and some brackish but as far as I know the freshwater species prefer quite hard water. We have a ton of them listed in our fish profiles but I'm not really an expert on the differences between them so I couldn't tell you anything that's not already listed on the profiles.

If I was filthy rich a big tank with tons of CPD's (or galaxy rasboras or whatever you want to call them) would be awesome. The one time I saw them at the LFS they were about $8 a pop so that'd be a really expensive tank.
