Has anyone mentioned darters yet? There are some beautiful rainbow and greenside darters which are native to my state, but unfortunately they are also jumpers. Darters appreciate a decent amount of flow too.

Everyone seems normal... until you get to know them.

I dig darters! I wanted to get a couple of the Orange ones a while back but because they're riffle-dwellers (they like fast moving currents) didn't think that'd work w/ the other inhabitants of my current main tank.

No , most of these fish require at least a 5 gallon, or a 2g to themselves, but some you can put in bowls. A 5g tank realy isn't much bigger than a betta bowl.
Oh. That is a shame.

Not true.

Bettas and other labyrinth fish, have an organ called the labyrinth that allows them to breathe atmospheric air, goldfish do NOT have the labyrinth organ. Goldfish should not be kept it bowls. It's already illegal to do so in Rome
What????

Those Parosphromeni look pretty cool! Thanks Seikah.

Also, to all of you good folks that I promised a revised version of this list - are there any takers for a co-editing job? It's a fairly big task to sort these by tank size, water type (pH, temp., etc), minimum number, etc...

Endlers, although they're prolific as heck. Actually there are a few species that should be fine - here's a hint: look for species with small mouths that physically can't eat the baby shrimp. Rocket Killis, for instance...

This list is cool.

Is there anywhere on the web that has something like this that also has links to what they look like?

Thank you for the work compiling the list. Much appreciated.
