I've been kicking around the idea of starting a tank with nanofish. I have an old 20H sitting around still, which I shut down about half a year ago. I originally intended to go with a smaller tank, but I already have this one and it will give me plenty of options.

I used to keep celestial pearl danio, goldring danio (danio tinwini), and emerald dwarf rasbora (danio erythromicron) and was thinking about setting up a tank with those again.

If I get 8 (or even more) of each, I still have plenty of room for more fish.

I would love to keep the fish not much bigger than an inch. I was thinking maybe threadfin rainbows, cherry shrimp, and/or pygmy cories. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Those are both gorgeous fish, thanks! I'll definitely have to check my local LFS for them. I've never seen them around, but I also haven't been looking closely.

Thank you everyone for the post ideas. I actually ended up swapping my 20H for a 15 Column (better space profile for my space, even if it's more limiting fish-wise).

With nice shortcuts taken in cycling my tank thanks to bio-media from my 55 gallon, I now have a fully cycled, fully inhabited, heavily planted, southeast Asian biotope nanotank. :-D

My stocking list is:
7 Burmese Gold Ring Danio (danio tinwini)
6 Celestial Pearl Danio (danio margaritus)
6 Chili/Mosquito Rasbora (boraras brigittae)
6 Rosy Loaches (yunnanilus sp. rosy)

I must say, I got very lucky at being able to track down some truly interesting fish locally and all will be barely longer than an inch at most.

I decided to forgo the dwarf emeral rasbora and I'm hoping the loaches are okay in the strange footprint, otherwise I can move them to another tank. Once the tank the fish are established, I'll post pics.
