Volcano Rasboras

It seems that my lfs seem to acquire some of these fish. Has anyone had any experience with them? Their max size seem to be 1.6 inches and was thinking about getting them for my 5.5 g tank.

These guys get to be about the same size as harlequin rasboras. Give them a larger tank, maybe 10-20 gallons instead.

Probably a bad fit for a 5.5 gallon, I've seen them in person, they are not a nano sized fish, and they like to swim a lot.
