Caught all of the dadios, gonna be giving them up to the lfs soon.

What is a "different" fish that can go in a 5g? No basic fish like neons or rasboras.. And are comparable with a betta?

There's other danio and tetra species you might consider, including CPDs.

Some of my favorite "nano" tetra species are Ruby and Ember tetras.

Shurbert has been behaving really weird lately.. Swimming around really fast for no reason, barely eating, laying on the plants and substrate a lot and barely moving at all sometimes..
