What are the smallest fish?
Smallest thing i can think of is dwarf puffers, they are what an inch?
Ember tetras about 3/4"
Pygmy Cory (Corydoras pygmaeus) <1"
Tail Spot Pygmy Cory (AKA Dwarf Cory?) (Corydoras hastatus) <1.25"
Scarlet Badis (Dario Dario) <1"
There are also a couple of really small Rasboras and Tetras. Try doing an advanced search at www.aqadvisor.com and limit the results to 1" or 1.5" and you'll probably get a few more.
Endler's and Celestial Pearl Danios < 1"
(the prettiest of all teeny tiny fish, IMO)
Thanks, those are some awesome looking fish.
I had an idea to put a bunch of really small fish in a big tank with big plants.
Common and small would also be Bumblebee Gobi's, Dwars Rasbora, Norman's Lampeye .
But if you wanna see real SMALL look up: Paedocypris progenetica these fish grow to be 7.9mm (equals 0.3") talk about SMALL
Lol oddly enough i was looking at that that Paedocypris progenetica. But id like fish that i wouldnt need a magnifying glass to see, and im almost positive they would be eaten by the filter.
I really do like the scarlet badis but they are kinda pricey for something so small.

Funny as I was on this other website and someone had similar question and these here are the fish they had listed thought I just pass it on here. Hopefully you'll find something in here.
