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.

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.

Hey :lol: you asked for small I gave you a small fish with the 7mm :lol:

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.

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.
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.
