these are my 'wish fish' (laugh you will)
Orange Zebra Oto - yea, i know peru
Microdevario kubotai “Neon Yellow Microrasbora”
Dario dario “Scarlet badis, Scarlet gem” - can these go with rasbora and shrimp? so cute
and
Boraras uropthalmoides- “Sparrow rasbora” - whom i have fallen in love with.

how would Centromochlus sp. cf. reticulatus be with the small fish and shrimp - they are cute (if i can't get the orange ones), any idea on size yet, and what does a 'meaty' diet mean (to my betta that means all other fish and shrimp)

i would still need something for alge if not the orange - ideas think "nano"

i WISH you had more Parotocinclus peru - i am in LOVE with them...

if you don't have these these fish any ideas when you might? are we talking next sept-dec for all of them?

Yes, the Peru stuff will be next fall- unless you want to pay about double what I usually charge for me to get them wholesale. I don't like to do that, and it hurts my pocket book desperately as they dont sell quickly.
As for the kubotai- i have some in qt now, and scarlet badis coming in Tuesday. I am out of uropthalmoides, but can get more (probably not for a couple weeks, as I am in full swing traveling mode). Do you have any snails? Nerites are great for algae I do have regular otos coming in as well. I have some cocama here, but am working on breeding them to tyr and supplement demand. I don't want to part with them. I wish I had more paros as well, I didn't even get to keep any for myself I am bummed massively about that.

I am not sure how the reticularus would do, but I would imagine fine. They do like a LOT of flow/oxygenation which may not be ideal for things like boraras.

I wouldn't put any Centromochlus/Tatia species with shrimp.

Yes, they would love babies and juvies. However, they are completely fine with my Corydoras habrosus. I don't know the relative sizes of other nano fish, but compare them when considering these fish. They are quite greedy, most of the time.

would the cocama be okay with shrimp?

darn liked the Centromochlus but it would be with shrimp


i know nerites are great .. love them but the last batch you sent died - not you me... i still can't figure out what i am doing wrong. they have food, they have clean water, friends, i talk to them... okay to i did figure out the betta was flipping them over and eating them... could it be the eco-complete? .. the shrimp are happy, the fish are happy, the snails.. nope - i do love them... must be something i'm doing.

cocama are just fine with shrimp, i keep them in my crs breeding tank.

i have kept nerites on eco without issue- soundsl ike that pesky betta was preventing them from feeding.

Have any emerald rasboras? I have 6 of them and would like to add a decent group to the tank with them.

A reminder- I am out of town at Aquamania in MD this weekend. I am speaking on Saturday and vending on Sunday. I am also taking pre-orders, which get a 10% discount. The following weekend I am also out of town from Thursday through Sunday- get yoru orders in while you can

Three spot rasboras are coming out of qt (Boraras maculatus)!
