To that end I'd like to start an easily-referenced thread with lists of ideal species for nanos. Wherever possible, please provide both the common name[s] and the scientific name.


EDIT (8/31/10):

Click Here for Fishydaze's cleaned up, expanded, and most updated version of the list.

When I click the link, the forum page reloads... is the link dead?

EDIT: Correct linky:

Where is list?

Sorry, don't know who loaded up that link, but doesn't seem to be working any more.
go to post #98 IN THE thread, zip file of excel doc is there, and that seems to be working fine for me still

Could you edit your note above so the non-working link isn't listed? Will keep other readers from clicking on it helplessly
Thanks much
fishydaze

This is the google docs link. Added to my above post, adding it again here, will likely add it again later.

Is it wrong that I desperately want a 300 gallon tank stocked off this list?

Not at all... I wish I had 6 more tanks than I already have -- it's a disease, I tell you! ;-)

i had not thought of that but yes!! it sure does. what it did remind me of right away were the high-fin barbs (the black and white on the fins i mean). (another that i think are really nice but size-wise might not fall into this category i think)
these little guys were super cute. and pretty cheap too. i cant remember exactly but i think they were like 2 or 3 bucks maybe. i guess pretty averaged price, unlike the tucano i posted previously.

Daisy's Ricefish Oryzias woworae (25-30mm) is a great choice for a nano tank. I have 6 in a 5 gallon and they lay eggs every day. I started with 3 Daisy's in September and through opportunistic removal of fry from the tank now have 37 of them.
Great fish, wonderful looking males and the species has character. Plus will graze on algae. What more do you want?
