Default Boraras uropthalmoides and naevus

While everyone is clamoring for Boraras brigittae, I have tons of these guys. These are not fully colored up, as they are in quarantine tanks rather than planted displays and the tanks do not have substrate. The uropthalmoides get much more colorful. I figured I would show a couple pictures as they are really nice fish!

I also get asked all the time about the behavior of boraras, so here is a short video:

As you can see, they are more gatherers than schoolers.
