My 5 gal. Fluval Spec is finally cycled, and I'm planning to make an order with Rachel (Msjinkzd.com) soon. I'd like a shoal of small fish, small enough to have 8-10 total.
Here's a shot of the tank:
And from the other side:
Currently scaped with:
A few small branches of manzanita I had left over
Windelov Java Fern - Microsorium pteropus
Dwarf Hairgrass - Elocharis parcels
Anubias Nana Petite
Small (1" or less adult length)
Shoaling (would prefer schooling, but will settle for shoaling)
Personality - won't hide in the plants all day like the CPDs.
Right now Rachel has a few options:
Danio erythromicron - Dwarf Emerald Rasbora
I'd been planning to get b. briggitae, but haven't found any in stock locally or with Msjinkzd. I was leaning toward the emerald rasboras, but already have CPD's in another tank, and they're just too shy.
I was planning on ordering from Rachel because there's another fish I'd like that she has in stock for another tank of mine.
Locally, there are a few options, nothing too exotic:
Lamb chop rasbora
So, what do you think a good choice would be?
