Boraras uropthalmoides!

Just wanted to toss this out there:

Msjinzked has these right now, and if any of you don't have experience with them they are shockingly cool NANO fish.

We have 15 (soon to be 25) in our 55 gallon crypt tank and they are just ridiculously cool. IMHO, they outshine our CPDs.

Haven't seen any yet, but we have just started seeing mating behaviors, and our CPDs are finally doing the no-pants-dance again.

I'm guessing if there have been any, they get promptly munched by the CPDs or the 25 some Amanos in the tank.

Boraras uropthalmoides are microfish. they are only 12-16mm in size (.4-.6inches) and are typically on the lower end of the fish food chain with an extremely timid demeanor.

im going to keep these with my PFRs.

These are actually very hardy fish. I haven't had any issues with them except one getting stuck to the filter inflow lol.
