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.

What do you do with all the fry?

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.

I bought 25 of them for my Mini M....GORGEOUS little fish once they color up and become accommodated to the tank.

Hmmmm....

But will the presence of fish scare my future RCS. And my current amanos?

Nothing scares Amanos. Nothing.

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.

I am afraid of killing fish.

This is why I have bettas.

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